Testimonial Coming Soon
If jazz were a meritocracy saxophonist and composer Fred Foss would be a lot better known and appreciated. A veteran musician who's worked with Hugh Masekela, Lionel Hampton and Abdullah Ibrahim, Foss has just released his first album as a leader. "The Journey" is an impressive debut, an album marked by passion, poetry, lyricism and a truly venturesome spirit.
Playing alto and tenor saxes as well as flute, Foss displays grace and grit as he moves between straight-ahead jazz and some of the music's outer reaches. His playing is alternately tender and bold, and despite the album's broad stylistic reach, he never sounds out of his element.
