Ken Fowser

New York based tenor saxophonist, Ken Fowser, has quickly developed a reputation as one of the finest jazz musicians of his generation. While building upon a strong foundation steeped in the jazz tradition, Fowser continues to develop his own unique voice and style as a saxophonist and composer. Mostly noted for his full bodied tone, linear approach to jazz harmony, and commitment to swing, Ken has already made a name for himself among local and international jazz audiences alike.

Ken has successfully held down steady weekly gigs at both the world renown Smoke and Smalls jazz clubs. For two years every Friday night at Smoke, the Ken Fowser Quintet were featured for the “Round Midnight” performance, which allowed him the opportunity to close for virtually every notable figure in jazz today. Every Tuesday evening, he hosted the jam session at Smalls jazz club. Over his four year tenure there, the session became widely regarded as one of the best jam sessions in New York City.
