Altoist Andrew Speight returns for round 2 with Andrew Dickeson’s band. Great post-bop music.

“Andrew Speight will carry the music’s torch into the next millennium.” Wynton Marsalis

“When we hear talent like this, we know there has to be a place for jazz.” Leonard Feather

Andrew Speight is a clear-toned, hard driving alto sax player, one of the America’s most lively and lyrical exponents of straight-ahead, joyous jazz. A native of Sydney, Australia, Speight came of age playing with jazz royalty like Percy Heath, Nat Adderley, Benny Carter, Phil Woods, Nat Adderley, Wynton, Ellis and Branford Marsalis.

Twice a finalist in the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Saxophone Competition, Speight has lived in the US since the early 90’s, leading jazz programs at Michigan State University, San Francisco State and regularly leads education programs at Stanford University. His 1998 CD, Andrew Speight Quartet, won an Aria Award for Best Jazz Album.
