Jazz Room Series at Home<br>CD Release: Baritone Saxophonist Gary Smulyan Plays Alec Wilder


Gary Smulyan’s award as Down Beat 2019 Readers Poll Baritone Saxophonist of the Year is the 19th such award won by this master of the large horn.  A decades-long member of the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Joe Lovano’s large group and veteran of big bands led by Woody Herman and Thad Jones-Mel Lewis, Smulyan has become the world’s leading baritone soloist.  He has also recorded with such varied artists as Jimmy Heath, Tom Harrell, Carla Bley, Joe Henderson, B.B. King and Eddie Palmieri.  This concert celebrates the release of Smulyan’s 14th recording as a leader, Night Talk: The Alec Wilder Songbook, including Wilder’s iconic songs “I’ll Be Around” and “Moon and Sand,” and featuring an all-star octet playing the wonderful Mark Masters arrangements from the new CD.
