NEA Jazz Master Dave Liebman, “one of the most important saxophonists in contemporary music,” (Downbeat) states that Saxophone Summit’s focus on “late Coltrane” is a corrective celebration of music that has been “largely under appreciated and unexplored.” In his final years, Coltrane’s music included amazingly beautiful, lyrical melodies offset by intense, abstract and dissonant free group improvisation. Along with saxophonist Joe Lovano, “one of the most creative saxophonists going,” (Boston Globe) and newest addition, alto saxophonist and St. Louis native Greg Osby, Saxophone Summit is more than a cutting contest or saxophone battle. It has become a multi-faceted musical equation greater than the sum of its parts.
