With saxophonist and flutist Lew Tabackin and trumpeter Randy Brecker 

With bassist Boris Kozlov, and drummer Mark Taylor

“A garrulous tenor saxophonist and a highly lyrical flutist…” - The New York Times on Lew Tabackin

Award-winning saxophonist, flutist, and bandleader Lew Tabackin is an extraordinary musician dedicated to showing the full range of possibilities on his instrument – melodically, rhythmically, and dynamically. His huge sound and melodic approach to harmony have drawn bold comparisons to the late, great Coleman Hawkins, an icon to whom Tabackin has paid tribute at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola and The Kennedy Center. Tonight’s trio performances feature jazz giant Randy Brecker as special guest. In an esteemed career that has earned him six GRAMMY® Awards, Brecker has worked with everyone from Charles Mingus and Horace Silver to Frank Zappa and Parliament-Funkadelic. Catch this pair while you can; Toshiko Akiyoshi takes over as special guest tomorrow, so each night will be a unique experience.
