Dale Fielder Quartet With Rita Edmond at Hotel Normandie
The Dale Fielder Quartet continue their monthly residency at the historic landmark hotel, Hotel Normandie for a night of original music and jazz standards. Fielder's quartet of 22 years features Jane Getz-piano, Bill Markus-bass, Thomas White-drums and featured vocalist: Rita Edmond.
They will be playing tunes from their 20th Anniversary 2-disc CD, "Resilience"! "Dale Fielder has created an approach to the baritone sax that is entirely his own. His tone is rich and vibrant, his phrasing is sharp and fluid and his solos are well-constructed yet endlessly inventive. The telepathic-like interaction the band maintains is one of the factors that allows this group to rise a notch above in a field that abounds in great groups. If you are a fan of the baritone saxophone, you will absolutely love this album. Fielder’s chops are unequaled. I honestly don’t believe that there is a better proponent of the instrument alive and playing today. If you’ve never been a bari fan, the explosive creativity and enormous passion displayed on this recording may very well change your mind."
