This Weekend – Wallace Roney Sextet at Trumpets (Sat) and Hudson Valley Jazz Festival (Sun)

This Has Been a Phenomenal Summer!

This summer has been a constant flow of wonderful gigs. It's hard to believe that in just the past couple of months we've been lucky enough to perform at the Blue Note with the Dizzy Gillespie Orchestra, Kennedy Center with Michele Rosewoman's New Yoruba, Charlie Parker Festival with Oliver Lake, Montclair Jazz Festival with Radam Schwartz, Smalls Jazz Club with Josh Evans, Detroit Institute of Art with Loston Harris, Trumpets Jazz Club with Steve Johns, and of course my Wednesday night home at Hat City Kitchen with my favorite collaborators. But there's not much time to reflect on what's already happened, as more great music coming up this week has my undivided attention!

 

Wallace Roney Sextet at Trumpets in Montclair, and Hudson Valley Jazz Festival!

This Saturday at Trumpets and Sunday at Hudson Valley Jazz Festival, it will be my distinct honor to play in this group with 3 icons of the music. Trumpeter Wallace Roney, drummer Lenny White, and bassist Buster Williams are three musical heroes who have continued to change the music. Rounding out the band are my old buddy, Steve Myerson on piano, and up-and-comer Jordan Young on alto saxophone (at Trumpets) and the great alto saxophonist Eric Person (at Hudson Valley Jazz Festival).

Candlelight Lounge – Saturday September 5th 

I'm looking forward to being featured next Saturday afternoon at the famous Candlelight Lounge in Trenton. This is a soulful club which has an old fashioned vibe like the clubs I grew up playing at in Cleveland. We'll just be calling tunes with the house rhythm section. Should be swinging!

Dave Stryker’s CD soaring!

Last winter I was lucky enough to be one of ten saxophonists to record a track in honor of the great Stanley Turrentine on Dave Strykers new CD. Dave's CD “Messin’ with Mister T” made #1 on JazzWeek Radio chart and has been on the chart now for 20 weeks. It’s also gotten great reviews in Downbeat (4.5 Stars), Jazz Times, Jazziz, Hot House and many others. Pick up a copy today!
