Album Description

Veteran jazz masters Mark Lewis and David Friesen have recorded more than 100 albums between them, including two together (one on the Audio Daddio label, one on the Quartet label). The single “Alone Together” was recorded live at The Fremont in Seattle WA in December 2017. This recording is rare for a number of reasons: -It’s the first recording released of Mark Lewis on baritone saxophone, he’s most often heard on alto -David Friesen plays his own original music on recordings and in concert, almost never jazz standards -Mark Lewis typically records his own original music (more than 1,700 songs composed to date) -“Alone Together” is from the only night that was recorded at The Fremont during a six-month jazz series in a trendy neighborhood. - the club has since closed , a casualty of rising Seattle rents -The recording demonstrates master musicians improvising with what some might call unusual instrumentation – just baritone sax and bass -The performance combines an exquisite mix of technique, creativity and emotion – hallmarks of these musicians

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
