ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When it comes to the tenor saxophone, Lester Young is like a great apple tree with every other saxophonist being the fruit that grew from his roots. For the last eight generations, those apples have made for a pretty good pie! My new album, Tenor Time, is dedicated to the great tenor players that branched from that tree.

We didn’t have time to pay homage to everyone, but the guys I have seen and been listening to for years are all here and we are honoring them in a classic organ, guitar, and drums setting: Hank Mobley (“Soul Station”), John Coltrane (“On a Misty Night”), Dexter Gordon (“Fried Bananas”), Wayne Shorter (“Infant Eyes”), Stanley Turrentine (“Rocket Love”), Joe Henderson (“Inner Urge”), Sonny Rollins (“Everywhere Calypso”), Sonny Stitt (“Eternal Triangle”), and Harold Vick (“Our Miss Brooks”).

After living in New York City for 15 years I moved back to my hometown of Omaha several years ago. Unfortunately I had some health problems to the point that three years ago I wasn’t able to blow my horn, and things weren’t looking good. But through a lot of hard work - and the grace of God, I was able to turn things around, and now my health is much better, and I’m able to play again. And for that I am grateful.

I’ve known my good friend Dave Stryker since the mid 70’s in Omaha, and we’ve played a lot over the years. He worked with Jack McDuff and Stanley Turrentine and has many records out, so I trusted his experience at producing, and playing. He’s one of the best at what he does.

Dana Murray and I also go back a ways; we went to the same high school, albeit a few years apart. He is a well-respected drummer, producer, and engineer who worked with Wynton Marsalis in the late 90s into 2000. Dana also has a world-class studio in his home, so he not only contributed great drumming to this project but recorded and mixed the session as well.

Mitch Towne and I have played together over the years in many different situations. He has been playing the Hammond B-3 for the last decade and is one of the top organists in the Midwest. Mitch has a great groove and brought a lot of good things to the session.

This record is dedicated to my son Dominic. He is the greatest thing in my life and because of him I was able to play again and pay tribute to the tenor masters on Tenor Time!
