I'll be performing at the Jazz Showcase in Chicago this Thursday March 2nd through Sunday March 5th. I'll be there with two of my favorite musicians in the world Scott Hamilton and Harry Allen. Scott and Harry are two of the warmest and most lyrical tenor saxophonists alive today, and I'm very excited to be a part of the trio that will be accompanying them. They are musical heroes of mine and have been since I started playing. Both are consummate keepers of the flame of swinging tenor sax, from Ben Webster and Lester Young up to Zoot Sims and Stan Getz. Harry is coming in from New York, and Scott is making the journey from Italy where he resides these days. Scott was Harry's mentor in many ways and it will be great to hear them together. We'll have Stewart Miller on bass and Bob Rummage on drums, so it will be a swingin' time.
If you can't make the Showcase, stop by one of my steady gigs sometime:
