A sensational saxophone summit! Join master musicians Keith Oxman, Rich Chiaraluce, and Eric McGregor as they perform a mix of jazz standards and other tunes played by legendary tenor saxophonists throughout history.
Saxophonist Keith Oxman, a Denver native, has gigged steadily as a leader and sideman for more than 25 years—including a stint on the road with the Buddy Rich Big Band. He also has appeared with artists such as Sonny Stitt, Art Blakey, Jack McDuff, Tom Harrell, Jon Hendricks, and Mel Tormé. His original sound and style and abilities as a writer make him a force to be reckoned with: his arrangements breathe life into little-heard standards, his compositions could well become tomorrow’s often-heard standards, and he can swing like crazy with a fine sound, agile technique, and sure harmonic sense. He is currently the director of bands at East High School in Denver.
Rich Chiaraluce is a well-known woodwind authority and fixture of the Denver jazz scene. Over the course of an extensive career he has performed with Tommy Dorsey, Woody Herman, Bobby Shew, Red Rodney, and Carl Fontana, as well as singers Mel Tormé, Tony Bennett, Nancy Wilson, and Natalie Cole. Chiaraluce has taught at the University of Denver and the University of Northern Colorado, and he has recorded two albums as a bandleader: Because I Love You and Live! at Sherman’s Coffee House featuring guitarist Dale Bruning and bassist Ken Walker.
