AJ Kluth is a Chicago based saxophonist/composer/educator. With a fresh Masters Degree from DePaul University in hand, he is enjoying the freelancing musician's life in the Midwest while continuing to pursue further academic ventures. Apart from his interest in music, AJ has been nursing abiding passions for literature, philosophy, theology, metaphysics, chess, and well, the list grows more and more pretentious. AJ currently freelances with several creative music projects in the Chicago area and is extremely happy. He is busy at work on a few academic projects as well as writing for and rehearsing his quintet, the ajkQ. He has recently written and self-published a book of transcriptions of solos by saxophonist Chris Potter that has been warmly embraced by the jazz community. He's also trying to figure out how bicycles work. When not playing, listening to, studying, composing, or teaching music, he can generally be found reading anything he can get his hands on, taking something apart, or singing silly songs with his wife.
