Joe Lovano - Us Five at Mestsky dum Prerov, Czech Republic
Oct 24, 2009 12:00 AM
Joe Lovano - Us Five
Grammy-winning saxophonist and composer Joe Lovano stands alone at the vanguard of large and small group jazz. From his recent Grammy-nominated work with the WDR Big Band & Rundfunk Orchestra, Symphonica, to his role as Gary Burton Chair of Jazz Performance at Berklee College of Music, the Cleveland native has released 20 celebrated albums on the Blue Note label. With Folk Art, his 21st recording for Blue Note, Joe Lovano debuted Us Five on May 5th 2009.
“It’s the first time I’ve put together a group with people who aren’t my generation, who haven’t totally developed their approach, who are experiencing things for the first time. Everyone has fresh eyes and fresh ears, and this gives me ideas when I put together compositions that I had never played with anyone else before. Everybody is on their toes. It reminds me of when Tony Williams and Herbie played with Miles as real young cats, or when McCoy Tyner first played with Coltrane.” – Joe Lovano
