Description

Saxophonist and composer Gregory Tardy emerged from the highly productive and creative jazz scene of the 90s and has established himself "as one of the most important saxophonists of his generation." (Matthew Miller, All About Jazz). The quintet he leads on 'With Songs of Joy' includes Philip Dizack on trumpet and drummer Jaimeo Brown, who shot to fame with his 2013 album 'Transcendence' on Motema.

The music Gregory Tardy composes and performs is filled with devotional texture and emotion. The strength of his music and performance reaches out to the vast range of people regardless of their spiritual background, as it is the case with this his eighth release on SteepleChase.

"He sounds as if he's physically wresting new possibilities and beauty...It's moments such as these that invoke the combination of faith-infused yearning and hard-won triumph that is at the heart of the best spiritually inspired improvisational music." - Carlo Wolff, JazzTimes on 'The Strongest Love'

Personnel: Gregory Tardy (tenor saxophone), Philip Dizack (trumpet), John Chin (piano), Sean Conly (bass), Jaimeo Brown (drums)
