NOTE: This performance is a screening - there will not be live performers on stage.
One of Canada’s top saxophonists Steve Kaldestad plays in a visceral yet melodic style that draws from jazz giants like George Coleman, Sonny Rollins, Joe Henderson and John Coltrane. He has assembled an all-star band to celebrate tenor saxophone legend George Coleman. The band will play music from the recently released recording In Baltimore on Vancouver’s Reel To Real Recordings. The album is made up of material from a live performance at The Famous Ballroom in Baltimore, Maryland in 1971.
“With a robust tone and swinging, rhythmic propulsion, his-lines unwind fluidly, extending into the altissimo register... His solos are intelligent, but accessible, in part because of their tasty blues spicing.” ~ Glen Hall, Exclaim!
Steve Kaldestad - tenor saxophone, Chris Davis - trumpet, Brad Turner - piano, Conrad Good - bass, Jesse Cahill – drums
