One of the most satisfying instrumental projects (to these ears) of the past few years has been Steve Cole's "Moonlight."  Contemporary with a nod to all that's beautiful from the past - with an orchestra driving home each carefully chosen song - it is a breathtaking example of how saxophone should sound.  Like a ripe peach, full and round, as the eater takes a bite of perfect deliciousness.

Steve was warming up to "Moonlight" for several years.  His 1998 debut, "Stay Awhile", was produced by Brian Culbertson.  The musical lineage has been a treat since.  Several projects have enabled Steve to enjoy a status in Contemporary Jazz that is rare.  And he seems to (happily) flow into new work with fresh ideas and gusto for the music.  Not a formula that others feel compelled to follow.  Or one that many would like STEVE to follow.  Read between those lines ;)

Our Chicagoan, classically trained - with a MBA in Economics - and a Professor of Music Business, as well as consummate sax man and composer - will be with us on Tuesday, 7/30.  What a way to wrap up July!   A founding member of The Sax Pack, who is visiting our extended region a few times in August - we see a few of those dates are with Nick Colionne!   AND Steve has a new musical adventure that he wants to share. 

The fun starts at one - Steve's on board at three - we'll have some amazing music to celebrate our Professor's arrival :-D  And a Chat Room that will hang on his every word.  Students, class is in session!
