I'm very excited to invite you out to another great event this Sunday afternoon at Saxquest (see address below). We'll be hosting a free master-class with Mike Lee from New York who will be at the Saxquest shop this Sunday starting at 2PM. The setting will be informal and refreshments will be served.
 
Mike is one of the hardest working jazz saxophonists on the scene today. His musicianship is awe inspiring and his passion for jazz and the saxophone is contagious. Check out his web site here http://mikeleejazz.com.
 
Noted jazz historian Mark Gridley summed up Mike's musicianship very well by saying:
 
His writing and playing exhibit a consistently high intelligence and concern for continuity and purpose. …I have noticed an assimilation of varied influences in the hard-bop mainstream, and a marvelous fluency. His command of the instrument is masterful, and he has refined an incisive posture within his approach to improvisation.
 
This is a wonderful opportunity to meet Mike and to get a first-hand glimpse into the mind of one of today's great masters of the saxophone. Don't let this opportunity pass you by. We work very hard at bringing these kinds of events to St. Louis and remember, our enthusiasm to continue hosting such venues depends on how many people we get coming to check them out. Thanks for your support!!!.
 
Mike will also be performing with his quartet New Tricks live at Highway 61 Roadhouse Sunday at 7PM. The group features Ted Chubb on trumpet, Kellen Harrison on bass and Shawn Baltazor on drums (http://newtricksjazz.com).
