Fast-rising New York-based tenor saxophonist Melissa Aldana has made quite a splash since relocating from her native Chile. Her pure tone and “cultured, emotionally weighted, purposeful sound” (Boston Globe) draws on the traditions of Lester Young, Sonny Rollins, and Stan Getz while bringing a fresh and distinct new voice to the conversation. In 2013, she won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition for saxophone, becoming the first female instrumentalist to win the award since its inception in 1987. Aldana’s “savvy subversions to jazz’s modern mainstream” (JazzTimes) feature Sam Harris piano, Pablo Menares bass, and Kush Abadey drums.
