Michael Zilber, one of San Francisco's leading saxophonists, is hailed by legendary NEA Jazz Master Dave Liebman as "one of the best musicians anywhere, period!" Fresh off his Live Beauty CD, named one of the year's best by DownBeat Magazine, Zilber will perform music from his upcoming album of all original music, a tribute to the saxophone giants.
The recording features New York jazz greats Dave Kikoski (piano), James Genus (bass) and Clarence Penn (drums). Interestingly, the band at The Back Room will be exclusively made up of New York expatriates Matt Clark on piano, Peter Barshay on bass, and Akira Tana on drums.
