One of today’s great young tenors, Wayne Escoffery is a former student and protégé of the great Jackie McLean. Called “abundantly gifted, extremely confident” by JazzTimes, Escoffery has worked with Eric Reed, Lonnie Plaxico, Abdullah Ibrahim, the Mingus Big Band/Orchestra/Dynasty, Ben Riley’s Monk Legacy Septet, and Tom Harrell. Of his latest record, All About Jazz said, “Not since the works of bassist Charles Mingus and saxophonist John Coltrane has there been music so charged with emotion and so engulfed in spirituality.” Escoffery’s quartet features Dave Kikoski, Tyrone Allen II, and Ralph Peterson.
