Alto saxophonist Steve Lehman has arrived. The New York Times described his 2009 release Travail, Transformation and Flow as a breathtaking accomplishment and it's #1 Jazz/Pop CD of 2009.
That album solidified Lehman's status as a young visionary composer with powerful new ideas about the future of jazz. On Dialect Fluorescent, Lehman defies his reputation as a future-fixated modernist and combines his own state-of-the-art compositions with a program of compositions by jazz legends like John Coltrane and Jackie McLean. But this album isn't just about paying homage every piece is treated as an opportunity to demonstrate a broad continuum of possibilities within the jazz tradition.
