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

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!
