Description

Chris Byars's ongoing endeavour to re-discover and celebrate works by outstanding jazz composers of the past generations produced here another collection of gems by alto saxophonist Frank Strozier superbly arranged by Byars.

Born in Memphis, TN in 1937 Frank Strozier grew up playing piano in the nourishing Memphis blues/jazz environment. Strozier established himself in New York as highly acclaimed alto sax player and composer in the 1960s, performing as a member of The Miles Davis Sextet, the Johnny Griffin Orchestra and groups led by Chet Baker, McCoy Tyner and Booker Ervin, among others.

"The music of Duke Jordan is surely worthy of re-appraisal and when it is refurbished and re-interpreted as creatively as it is here it emerges as much more than a trip down memory lane but serves as inspirational source material upon which to build a new music." - Euan Dixon, Jazz Views (on 'The Music of Duke Jordan')

Personnel: Chris Byars (alto saxophone, flute), John Mosca (trombone), Stefano Doglioni (bass clarinet), James Byars (oboe), Pasquale Grasso (guitar), Ari Roland (bass), Stefan Schatz (drums)
