Saxophone

Chris Colangelo | 2 Trios+1

When you listen to this special CD, what you immediately notice is the full, rich, deeply resonant tone of Colangelo’s bass. He is an old-school bassist who does not use electronic pickups. When amplification is necessary in a live venue, he prefers to put a microphone in front of his bass and let it pick up what’s coming out of the entire instrument.

Dale Fielder Quarter | Romance Serenade

Dale Fielder has earned a position in the front ranks of saxophonists on the West Coast over the span of the last ten-plus years. His quartets and large ensembles have played virtually every important and medium-scale jazz venue on the coast.

Noel Jewkes | Quartet

“Noel Jewkes has been a smile on the fog of San Francisco’s slopes for decades… a barely kept secret only to those outside the inner jazz circle. For those who know how deep his playing is each time he addresses any piece of his musical arsenal, the name NOEL JEWKES elicits instant cheer.”
