The musical menu includes songs composed or made famous by John Coltrane, Michael Brecker, Walt Weiskopf. With over 40 years of experience under his belt, Pedicin says he feels as comfortable as ever with respect to his instrument of choice. This tremendous recording bears witness to his statement.
