About the Album

Los Angeles-based saxophonist David Sills returns with his 3rd recording for Origin, a swinging sextet session featuring some of LA's finest including Gary Foster, Larry Koonse and Putter Smith. From cool, melodic originals like "Summer Cloud" and the title cut to interesting standards such as "Moon and Sand," and the classic "Prelude to a Kiss," Sills creates "...imaginative, engaging, timeless jazz at its finest." (Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times) A life-long surfer, Sills combines his love of Southern California's jazz and beach scenes with his dedication to environmental causes - a portion of proceeds from "Green" will go to the Sierra Club.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
