CUTTIN' UP! with Tenor Saxophonists Lew Tabackin & JD Allen
(Published: April 01, 2013)
G&J Productions and Ginny's Supper Club present a re-mix of a old-time jazz tradition: Two Musicians - Same Instrument - Jamming Head to Head.
Cuttin' Up is a high-energy musical match between two musicians on the same instrument, trading songs and solos in a "friendly" rivalry.
Reminiscent of the musical pairings dating back to the 1920's, Cuttin' Up displays the upward spiral of excitement in jazz.
Lew Tabackin is recognized as a virtuoso, hard-driving tenor saxophonist. Lew has played in the big bands of Clark Terry, Duke Pearson, and Thad Jones and Mel Lewis as well as George Wein's Newport All-Star Band,
the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band and his own renowned orchestra, co-led with Toshiko Akiyoshi.
Hailed by the New York Times as "a tenor saxophonist with an enigmatic, elegant and hard-driving style," JD Allen has performed, recorded, and toured with legends Lester Bowie, George Cables, Betty Carter, Louis Hayes , Ron Carter, Jack DeJohnette, Frank Foster Big Band and Winard Harper.
