A Bar LunÀtico favorite, saxophonist Michael Blake makes panoramic music that explores the nooks and crannies of jazz. He commands a wily tone that might evoke an ancient elder, snap at a hard bop riff or take a turn to the interstellar. His new group, Indestructible Object, has a very promising lineup. Check it out!
Michael Blake (woodwinds), Steve Cardenas (guitar), Ben Allison (bass), Kenny Wollesen (drums)
Doesn't get any better than that.
