Erica Lindsay: Yes-Live at the Rosendale Cafe

Tenor saxophonist Erica Lindsay wails in the open, unfettered fashion of the late freebopper Dewey Redman at this gig in upstate New York. Accompanied by the kinetic, swinging pulse of drummer Bob Braye, the harmonically provocative pianist Francesca Tanksley and bassist Otto Gardner, Lindsay lights it up on the urgent title track, the cooker “Dance of the Elves” and the modal “Gotta Get to It.” Elsewhere, she blows with elegance and grace on the introspective “Dusk-Fall” and the mesmerizing “Night of Roses.”
