In addition to being a fluid, heartfelt improviser, Denver-based saxophonist, Lynn Baker, composes with an ear for melody and a mind for artistic challenge. On Azure Intention, Baker's debut recording for OA2 Records, he presents eight originals that were penned over the last 20 years. Along with pianist Reggie Berg, drummer Paul Mullikin, and bassist Bijoux Barbosa, they create a cohesive, resonating statement ranging from "Lament," an open wound responding to the impending first Gulf War, to the hard-driving swing of "Into the Blues," and the strutting "Appalachian Shuffle."
