Album Notes
Formed in 1990 by saxophonists Pat Mallinger and Cameron Pfiffner, Sabertooth explores a variety of musical genres in the quartet format of two saxophones, drums, and Hammond B3 organ. Sabertooth continues its residency at Chicago's premier jazz club, the famous Green Mill Lounge, where the band has been performing to capacity audiences every Saturday evening since 1992. The band's repertoire includes many original compositions and jazz classics by Duke Ellington, Horace Silver, Wayne Shorter, Lester Young, John Coltrane, as well as covers by the Beatles, Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Bob Marley. Special invited guests who have performed with the band have included Harry Conick Jr., Kurt Elling, Joe Lovano, Roy Hargrove, Wynton Marsalis Band, Jack McDuff, Joey DeFrancesco, Umphrey's Mcgee Band, and many others. Sabertooth has also performed for numerous jazz festivals and concerts.

"This impeccable quartet reaches a crescendo with the release of this eponymous c.d. The groups iron clad consistency is captured faithfully on this live date"

"These guys really play!"
The Sabertooth Quartet is a regular Saturday night feature at the Green Mill and this recording both confirms and justifies their longevity at this gig—these guys really play! Think of this group as the natural evolution or update of Zoot and Al meet Larry Young and Elvin. But this comparison is not really fair; the Sabertooth is based on new original voices.
Dan Trudell's B-3 Hammond organ sets the stage with the just the right amount of grease and intellect. He gets a great original sound without classic quotes from the Jimmy Smith or Charles Earland school. Drummer Ted Sirota handles all of the grooves, from straight-ahead jazz to touches of R&B and a little reggae with great skill. Pat Mallinger, one of Chicago's most versatile and in-demand saxophonists is perfectly matched with fellow saxophonist Cameron Pfiffner. These guys always play at the highest level, as one voice.
This is also an ambitious recording on other levels. It's recorded live at the Green Mill, after midnight and well into the night. This means that there is no overdubbing and editing—this is an honest recording of jazzmen at work in their office. Also, in a world of retro jazz, Pat and Cameron composed seven of the nine tracks. Then, after all of the serious jazz and blowing, Pat brings a little show to the business with a swinging version of the Candyman!
Drink a pot of coffee this Saturday, head up to the Green Mill, catch this band at midnight and take home this CD—it will keep your groove together all week!
