You might think by glancing over the list of accolades garnered by saxophonist/composer Joe Lovano, that this renowned musician has found a tried-and-true formula for success, and that he has. Unlike lesser artists who will take what seems to work for them and keep coming back with more of the same, the secret to Lovano's success is his fearless ability to always challenge and push the conceptual and thematic choices he makes in a quest for new modes of artistic expression and new takes on what defines the jazz idiom.
Lovano has recently been performing with an expanded ensemble which will be featured on his upcoming Blue Note release to be called Streams of Expression which will include Gunther Schuller's Birth of the Cool Suite, commissioned by the Monterey Jazz Festival as well as a five part suite composed by Lovano.
