Product Description

Born in the US Virgin Islands and raised in New York, Grammy-winning US jazz saxophone giant Jean Toussaint began his international career as a member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers in 1982. After four and a half years in the band alongside Terence Blanchard, Donald Harrison, Lonnie Plaxico and Mulgrew Miller, he settled in London, quickly becoming a key figure in British jazz. Toussaint has maintained a considerable presence as bandleader in Europe, especially in Britain and France, and worked in the groups of McCoy Tyner, Max Roach, Cedar Walton, Gil Evans and Jeff 'Tain' Watts. Tate Song features Toussaint's working quartet of pianist Andrew McCormack, bassist Larry Bartley and drummer Troy Miller. The set includes originals by Toussaint and McCormack, plus the standard These Foolish Things and Milton Nascimento s Vera Cruz . Following his 2010 release Live In Paris And London, which The Independent described as "a state-of-the-art disquisition on both sax technique and post-bop jazz", Tate Song is Toussaint s tenth album and includes liner notes by pianist/broadcaster Julian Joseph.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch jazz from an excellent quartet. 21 Mar 2014
I booked to see the Jean Toussaint launch gig for this album as I hadn't been to Ronnie's for a while (I am a member) . I was so glad I did as I had an evening enjoying the most sublime jazz delivered by an excellent quartet each comfortable in their own skins while working as a seamless unit. It was also nice to see some jazz royalty in the audience including Branford Marsalis, if nothing else because it reinforced my view that I was very lucky to be at such a top-notch gig. Having bought the cd at the gig I can confirm it is a very accurate reflection of their live performance. While very happy to pay it to support the artist, buying the CD on Amazon has the added benefit of being some £4.50 cheaper!
