Shenole Latimer

He strides on stage with the energy of a rock star and brings his saxophone to his lips. Suddenly you feel an incredible force pulling you towards him and the stage.

Such is the seemingly magnetic ability of award winning saxophonist Shenole Latimer to draw in his audience with his glowing stage persona and impassioned playing. Latimer's playing style shows influences drawn from the likes of Michael Brecker, Branford Marsalis, and Dexter Gordon. However, he exhibits the gift of being able to effectively communicate with and affect his audiences through a voice that is uniquely his own.

Shenole Latimer decided to pursue music professionally in 1998 and within just one year of his entering the scene, he had gained an endorsement from the woodwind instrument accessory giant known as Vandoren and had handily won the 1999 Best Horn Player Award, which was a prestigious reader's poll from the now defunct Long Island Voice. These initial accomplishments helped to fuel Latimer's ambition of becoming a respected headliner on the big stage.
