Contest background

 

YouTube continues to further expand the number of people who can see a single musical experience. Since its inception there have been a number of highly entertaining if not totally comical videos of musicians.  One video hopefully coming to mind is of the Duke Ellington Orchestra in Chicago which features a performance by a very passed out Paul Gonzalez. Another video recorded in the last 3 years features a younger alto player. In addition to the video showcasing some fabulous solo work over a Bobby Timmon’s standard it also nicely captures the voice of a club patron, whom is extremely excited and entertained and that is putting it lightly. 

This saxophonist has been heavily mentored in the past by Dick Oats and piano player Mulgrew Miller. He has been featured in Down Beat magazine over the last few years as a player to look out for in the future. You may have also seen this sax player on tour with Christian Mcbride’s group Inside Straight.  Other videos of this sax player with Christian can be seen on YouTube by searching Christian McBride Jazz at the Bistro.
