Sax Stuff

This weeks show featured some hot sax playing by jazz artists, new and old. Our featured artist is Mike DiRubbo, an alto player with roots in the Connecticut area, but now an accomplished player in the NYC scene. Chronos, his seventh album, is an organ trio sound that rocks, grooves and swings as you will hear in this show. I highly recommend this CD. That one is followed by the great Art Pepper in his Village Vanguard performance a few years before passing featuring a quartet that included Elvin Jones. Stacy Dillard is a young tenor sax player with his first CD recorded live at Smalls Jazz Club. We finish with a Joe Lovano find of one of his first CD's as a leader with a great quintet. We hear Joe in a gorgeous piano duet followed by the full quintet. Hope you dig.
