Gary Smulyan’s award as Down Beat 2019 Readers Poll Baritone Saxophonist of the Year is the 19th such award won by this master of the large horn. A member of Joe Lovano’s large group and veteran of big bands led by Woody Herman and Thad Jones-Mel Lewis, Smulyan has become the world’s leading baritone soloist. He is joined by the tenor sax giant Ralph Moore, who is a veteran of groups led by Horace Silver, Roy Haynes, Dizzy Gillespie, and is returning to the jazz scene after over a decade as part of Kevin Eubank’s NBC Tonight Show band in California. The two major saxophone voices are joined by pianist Renee Rosnes, bassist David Wong and drummer Carl Allen.
