(Self Released)

Tenor sax man Bob Mintzer has been able maintain his own musical identity while also remaining a centerpiece of the Yellowjackets for many years now. The successful balancing act continues with his new album Canyon Cove. The new album features Mintzer’s signature big, bright sound in a wholely new context once again. Joined by Larry Goldings’ stirring B-3 organ, Peter Erskine’s solid drumwork, this is yet another great work from one of the great saxophone voices of the modern era.
