Dan Pratt is a force to be reckoned with on the New York jazz scene, one of today's top young tenor saxophonists, and a gifted composer, all evidenced on his quartet's debut recording, Springloaded. Pratt began his studies as a classical baritone saxophonist in his native Saratoga, CA before switching to tenor. He was accepted to the Monterey Jazz Festival High School All-Star Band, directed by the late trumpeter and Duke Ellington alumnus, Bill Berry and with this band he experienced his first taste of the international jazz scene, touring throughout Japan and performing at the legendary Monterey Jazz Festival.
