Arthur “Juini” Booth, bassist/composer, lives and works in New York City. Playing professionally since 16,juini-booth-2 Juini Booth has expanded the range of the contrabass into a refined personal language of intense acoustic awareness and spatiality of sound. Firmly rooted in the forefront of the American jazz tradition, which he has helped to shape, Booth’s music also integrates influences from world music, emerging beyond the boundaries of categories to express the poetics of universal humanness.

His compositions reflect a masterful use of simple melodic themes developed through unexpected harmonies, unusual tonal qualities and time relationships, inviting the listener to a new level of musical perception.

Booth , has performed and toured for over 30 years with jazz musicians from Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers to Tony Williams “Lifetime” to Coleman Hawkins to Albert Ayler to Chuck Mangione to Sun Ra to McCoy Tyner.

Juini tours extensively in Western and Eastern Europe, performing solo bass concerts in the U.S., Canada and Japan. Some career highlights have been a concert with Randy Weston at the Tangiers Jazz Festival, Morocco; and with Sun Ra Arkestra in Tiblisi,Georgia (USSR) a film of painter Larry Rivers entitled “Round Trip.”
