2011-0219 Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival-2199602

Zach Grady, tenor saxophonist of the Michael Thomas Quintet. They opened Day 2 of the Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival with a strong straight-ahead set of jazz that conjured up memories of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. This band has been together 13 years and their tightness, enthusiasm and strong playing was totally evident. Hope to see them soon and I purchased a couple of their recordings.
