Album Description

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
