Sharp Nine Records
Sharp Nine is pleased to add the formidable young altoist Dmitry Baevsky to its roster of hard- hitting, straight-ahead artists. The St. Petersburg native has been honing his craft in New York for more than a decade and the results are here for all to enjoy. With a crack young rhythm section of Jeb Patton, David Wong and Jason Brown—and joined by trumpet phenom Jeremy Pelt on four tunes—Baevsky presents a killer program that features Monk's “We See," Bud Powell's “Webb City" and obscure gems including Gigi Gryce's “Shabozz" and Clifford Brown's “LaRue."

His dark, warm tone, superior technique and harmonic sophistication are all on display on his outstanding Sharp Nine debut. This is a superb session that combines hard-driving playing with tender lyricism and establishes Dmitry Baevsky as an exceptional new voice on the alto saxophone.

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!
