Bleckmann has released a series of gorgeous and irreverent albums on the Winter & Winter label, including recordings of Las Vegas standards, of Berlin Kabarett, and of popular bar songs (all with pianist Fumio Yasuda). His more recent releases on the label include a 2009 recording of newly-arranged songs by Charles Ives (with jazz-rock collective Kneebody) and his acoustic solo album I Dwell in Possibility (2010).
In addition to his work as a soloist and leader, Bleckmann has additionally collaborated with numerous notable musicians and composers, including Laurie Anderson, Uri Caine, Philip Glass, John Hollenbeck, Sheila Jordan, Phil Kline, David Lang, Kirk Nurock, Ben Monder, Michael Tilson Thomas, Kenny Wheeler, John Zorn, the Bang on a Can All-Stars, and, most prominently, Meredith Monk, with whom Bleckmann worked as a core ensemble member for fifteen years. He has also recently been interviewed by Terry Gross on NPR's Fresh Air and appeared on the Letterman show with Laurie Anderson. Tonight he celebrates the recent release of his latest project, Hello Earth! The Music of Kate Bush.
