- "With a full, husky tenor sound in tow the former Bergonzi student brings to mind not only his former mentor but the timbres of Dexter Gordon and Joe Henderson as well.” - The Saxophonist Magazine
After 20 years on the move, including time spent living and performing in Europe, tenor saxophonist Gregory Dudzienski recently returned to Chicago, settling into a period of engagement with the city's mighty music community, and developing a cohesive group dynamic with like-minded colleagues. Finding bassist Kelly Sill, pianist Chris White and drummer Jeff Stitley, they quickly formed a musical bond that is evident on this collection of seven Dudzienski originals. Their dedication to the melodic, harmonic and rhythmic language of jazz of the late '50s and '60s, provides a substantial base for the group's explorations and growth. “A great warm sound and his melodic way of playing is all heart.” - Jerry Bergonzi
