Two current masters of the tenor sax come together for what promises to be a very happy jazz occasion!
Harry wowed our Napa audience with an unusual Duo presentation last year, and we welcome him back.
Critic Gene Lees, wrote: “Stan Getz was once asked his idea of the perfect tenor saxophone soloist. His answer was, ‘My technique, Al Cohn’s ideas, and Zoot’s time.’ The fulfillment of that ideal may well be Harry Allen.”
Critic Mark Stryker, wrote: “What separates Grant Stewart from so many of his peers stuck in the quicksand of hard bop nostalgia is the sheer creative spark and spontaneity of his solos… When Stewart gets hot the questions of individuality evaporate amid the in the moment thrills of his invention.”
Join us for a joyful and swinging afternoon @ RMW!
