Rising tenor saxophone star releases her second trio album unveiling powerful music by herself and her illustrious band mates. As the trio charts new terrain and evolves in its musical identity, Aldana feels that there’s continuity from the last album and perhaps some added maturity. They were working and touring a lot, performing one day at a large outdoor stages like the Playboy Jazz Festival in LA. Then perform next at intimate clubs like Smalls in New York. She is trying to bring in all the experience and things that she learned these past two years. She has gone to many really different places, hanging out with the guys, rehearsing back in New York and composing new music. Aldana feels that this album is a more mature band sound that’s starting to emerge.
The acclaimed tenor saxophonist will be offering a free master class from 3pm – 4pm. The concert will follow at 7:30pm. More info here.
