Sam Taylor Quintet featuring Larry McKenna
Frankie's Jazz Club
Don’t miss this hot inter-generational saxophone summit! Hailed by All About Jazz as “wise beyond his years” NYC saxophonist Sam Taylor brings his remarkable chops to a collaboration with one of his all-time heroes. Now 80, Philadelphia tenor saxophonist Larry McKenna has played with Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and countless others. With deep melodic awareness, heavy swing, and mastery of the American Songbook, plus a powerful, room-filling tone, his is a hugely underrated talent. These two sax masters are backed up by first-call Vancouver jazz heroes Jesse Cahill drums, Paul Rushka bass, and Chris Gestrin keys.
