GRANT STEWART TRIO
Time 8:00 pm
Grant Stewart plays as much tenor saxophone as anyone, anywhere. The 45-year-old Toronto native, who has lived in New York since 1990, has become a veritable tenor colossus, and an unswerving force on the New York scene. He could be the reincarnation of the Sonny Rollins of the fifties, but he has parlayed this into his own distinctive sound. His muscular approach and deft use of space are enhanced by his unique sense of swing.
TRIO, released in 2015, received a five star review in Jazz Journal, a four star review in Downbeat Magazine, and spent 11 weeks in the Top 50 on the Jazz Week Charts, making it as high as #19.
Joining Grant will be bassist Paul Sikivie and drummer Phil Stewart.
