Alto saxophonist Jim Snidero leads this tribute to the great Phil Woods who passed away on September 29. Snidero first met Woods in 1975 and studied with him until moving to New York in 1981. Woods remained an important mentor and their last visit was in June. “Phil was the guy that inspired me to commit to the music, and for that, I will be forever grateful.” states Snidero. “Without question, he was one of the greatest jazz musicians and alto saxophone players of all time.” In a recent Jazz Times feature on Jim Snidero, Woods called Snidero a “masterful artist.” Snidero is leading stellar quintet in what will undoubtedly be a heartfelt and swinging tribute to the bebop master.
