This week on the podcast, we feature the great saxophonist and composer Jerome Sabbagh. He’s releasing a brand new record of original compositions titled The Turn on Bee Jazz and Sunnyside Records. It features original music played by a band of incredible musicians that have been together for ten years. They are Ben Monder on electric guitar, Ted Poor on drums, and Joe Martin on acoustic bass. We talk about who the kid really is in the photo used for this incredible album cover, the blend of tenor saxophone with electric guitar, and how the experience of playing with Paul Motian at the Village Vanguard was life changing.
The record release show is this Friday, September 12th at Cornellia Street Cafe in NYC. Please go out and support this band! If you love this music as much as I do, be on the lookout for a Kickstarter campaign that would allow this music to be pressed on vinyl! Can you imagine that album cover on vinyl??
