Description

Veteran alto saxophonist Andy Fusco, despite his long-time active career which had begun with the five-year tenure with the Buddy Rich Big Band in the late 70s, has been notoriously under-recorded as a leader.

His SteepleChase debut album in 2016 'Whirlwind', though it took 12 years before its release, has marked the new era for the virtuoso instrumentalist. Here on his second album (only one year has passed since the last one) Fusco leads his hand-picked band to present a tasteful and full-blooded program.

"Whirlwind is one of those rare releases that exceeds craft and competence, and establishes its own reasons for being. Among other things, it's a bottomless well of a jazz record. The more you play it, the more discoveries you make. The music offers multiple perspectives and can be enjoyed in a number of ways." - David A.Orthmann, All About Jazz (on 'Whirlwind')

Personnel: Andy Fusco (alto saxophone), Walt Weiskopf (tenor saxophone), Joel Weiskopf (piano), Mike Karn (bass), Jason Tieman (drums)
