Adam Schroeder

Los Angeles based Baritone Saxophonist Adam Schroeder has rapidly become a major force throughout the global jazz scene. Schroeder; a first call for a growing multitude of musical circumstances, is known equally for his hard- driving muscular swing, ferocious be-bopping, meticulous musicianship and leadership as well as his exquisite sound. For Schroeder’s debut release “A Handful of Stars” (Capri Records July 20th, 2010), his approach has been described as possessing soul a la Carney, intricate lines like those of Chaloff and Adams, the in-the-pocket swing of Mulligan and the hard-driving take- no-prisoners approach of Smulyan. This description of Schroeder’s approach is a concise ‘short list’ of the baritone saxophone lineage with which Schroeder’s name should duly be added for he is truly a master of the most unwieldy of traditional jazz instruments.
