This entire album is dedicated in loving memory of the great Nat King Cole. May his spirit and his music live through eternity. Robert Stewart

One of the most impressive hard bop tenor saxophonists to emerge during the 90s, Oakland, CA native Robert Stewart did not take even take up the instrument until the age of 17; however, he so completely immersed himself in the music of Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster, Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane - as well as the work of his personal mentor, Pharoah Sanders - that he quickly developed his own muscular tone. Scott Yanow - All Music Guide

“Perhaps the most important young artist to come along in decades" Billy Higgins

“Judgement .....with Eric Reed, Mark Shelby and Billi Higgins and Stewart's solid tone make this disc readily accessible to all. A superb jazz recording." Michael Bailey - All About Jazz

professional experience with: Wynton Marsalis Lincoln Jazz orchestra Black Note Max Roach Benny Golson Jimmy Smith Dizzy Gillespie McCoy Tyner Donald Byrd Milt Jackson
