George Garzone is a marvelous tenor saxophonist who is also known as a highly regarded educator. Some of people he has taught includes Branford Marsalis, Mark Turner, Joshua Redman, and many more. Garzone’s debut album arrived fairly late in 1995 with the main influences coming from Stan Getz and John Coltrane.
For this exceptional release, Garzone tapped into his love of Getz as he was paired with Trio da Paz, a superlative Brazillian trio led by the prominent guitarist, Romero Lubambo. In addition, piano expert Kenny Werner also joins this outstanding group of musicians.
The casual listener might mistake this album as background music but that would be wrong. A sharp listener will pick up and savor the music being played by these masters. Each musician is tuned in to each other and aware of the right moment to play each note. This is an album that rewards deep listening.
A powerful tenor saxophonist whose adventurous flights with his longtime band the Fringe have made him a legend in the Boston area, George Garzone has spent most of his life as a jazz educator. He began on the tenor when he was six, played in a family band, and attended music school in Boston. Garzone first formed his trio the Fringe (a group that in the mid-’90s also included founding member Bob Gullotti on drums and bassist John Lockwood) back in 1972. In addition, Garzone has guested in many situations, touring Europe with Jamaaladeen Tacuma and gigging with Danilo Perez, Joe Lovano, Jack DeJohnette, Rachel Z, and John Patitucci, among others. In 1995, he recorded a fine tribute to Stan Getz on NYC called Alone; Four’s and Two’s followed a year later and in 1999, Garzone returned with Moodiology. Fringe in New York was released in summer 2000. –Artist Biography by Scott Yanow
