Debut album from celebrated quartet!

Rising star saxophonist, composer, and bandleader Sharel Cassity (pronounced sha-REL) is quickly making waves on the New York and international jazz scenes with her fiery and soulful style of playing. A native of Yukon, Oklahoma, Sharel began playing saxophone at age 9. She attended the New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music followed by a full scholarship to the Juilliard School for her Master's degree. She has released two albums and appeared at venues such as the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the BlueNote Jazz Club, the Iridium, the Newport Jazz Festival, and Dizzy's Club Coca Cola. Besides performing with her own band, Sharel is currently a sideman with some of the most renowned jazz artists today including Jimmy Heath, Nicholas Payton, Joe Chambers, Orrin Evans, the Dizzy Gillespie All Stars, and Darcy James Argue.

In her debut album for Venus Records of Japan, Sharel is supported by a stellar trio of Cyrus Chestnut (piano), Rufus Reid (bass) and Lewis Nash (drums). She chose mostly well-known standards for this album and added her own spin with inventive hooks and arrangements. Her style and tone are very attractive; a good blend of deep, bluesy sound and a good amount of emotional expressiveness without being overly sentimental. The superb musicianship of all performers elevate the level of music. This is a great album by a wonderful rising star with serious talent. Japanese pressing.
