About the Album

With Sacred Machines, the New York City-based saxophonist showcases his intricate ensemble writing with a band of top-flight creative musicians, including pianist Roberta Piket, flutist Jamie Baum, bassist Gary Wang and drummer Jeff Hirshfield. With the front line of tenor sax and alto flute navigating his thoughtful, interweaving melody lines, White creates textures steeped in tradition but with modern qualities reminiscent of Dave Holland's groups or those of his mentors, Jerry Bergonzi and George Garzone. "White openly admits being influenced by all sorts of things from Coltrane to the Cure. Certainly, he's got the talent to bring these two worlds of music together..." --Arizona Republic

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
