A collaboration inspired by the albums Lovano made with fellow tenor titans Michael Brecker, David Liebman, and Ravi Coltrane as Saxophone Summit, this night reunites Lovano with Coltrane and tenor luminary Joshua Redman, whose explosive duo performance of “Blackwell’s Message” with Lovano was an unforgettable highlight of the historic 2013 opening night concert at the SFJAZZ Center. This unprecedented gathering of saxophone masters are joined by an incredible rhythm section including pianist Geoffrey Keezer, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts.

ABOUT JOE LOVANO
Described by DownBeat magazine as “the titan among us,” GRAMMY Award-winning saxophonist Joe Lovano is one of the era’s definitive improvisers and bandleaders. A Cleveland native born to a family of musicians, he began on alto saxophone at five. Cutting his professional teeth with the bands of Woody Herman and Mel Lewis, Lovano has become the most acclaimed saxophonist and composer in modern jazz, winning a 2010 triple crown in the DownBeat Critics Poll for Jazz Artist of the Year, Tenor Saxophonist, and Jazz Group for his Us Five quintet. He had long-term collaborations with the late drummer Paul Motian and guitarist John Scofield, and has performed with innumerable jazz greats including Jim Hall, Elvin Jones, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, and Charlie Haden. A prolific bandleader, Lovano has released nearly 30 albums including 20 for Blue Note alone — more than any other living artist. He was a member of the SFJAZZ Collective from 2007–2009, and was a recipient of both a Distinguished Alumni Award and an honorary doctorate from Berklee.
