Released on Origin Records in 2009, Ricky Sweum’s debut showcases the saxophonist in a light of gratitude, as he pays homage to one of his musical heroes, Michael Brecker, through a set of finely-tuned originals. Showcasing his talents as a writer and creative force, Sweum leads his band in a direction that is uniquely his own.
