Doug Webb – Another SceneNovember 22, 2013 / No Comments / Tags: Another Scene, Doug Webb, dwayne burno, Peter Zak, Posi-Tone, Rudy Royston
Veteran saxman Doug Webb has a big-time jazz saxophone voice, in league with some of the great purveyors of the instrument. This sound is on full display on his latest effort Another Scene. Webb can burn hard on a swing tune or find the tenderest approach on a ballad. He knows his stuff and he’s joined by a collection of musicians who know theirs as well. Joining Webb on the project are Peter Zak on piano, Dwayne Burno on bass and Rudy Royston on drums. The group covers an array of material, from Webb’s excellent compositions, as well as tunes by the likes of Dave Brubeck, Benny Carter, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Kenny Wheeler. Webb’s big, bright sound in the midst of all this great rhythm is tremendous and the performances here make this one of our favorites of the year.
