We’ve been having great fun following the careers of two of
’s young, tenor saxophonists – Daniele Scannapieco and Max Ionata. Italy
Recently, Sergio Gimigliano of Picanto Records decided to put Daniele and Max together with the pulsating bassist Reuben
Rogers and the drumming propulsion of Clarence Penn.
The result is the Tenor Legacy CD [
PIC014] from which the editorial staff at JazzProfiles has selected Max’s composition New York Dream to serve as the audio track to the following YouTube.
If you listen closely, you may be able to discern strains of Sonny Rollins’ Airegin, which serves as the song structure for Max’s tune, hence the CD’s title. Max takes the first, tenor solo.
