What do Stanley Clarke, Sarah Vaughn, Clark Terry, Les Paul, Dizzy Gillespie, Tito Puentes, Jerry Garcia, Mick Jagger, Madonna, Jeff Beck, Stevie Wonder, Julian Lennon, and Paul Simon all have in common? 3X National Endowment for the Arts grantee, and Rico Reeds Saxophone Artist, JIMMY HALPERIN!
Yes, as a matter of fact we will be playing a lot in the near future in support of the new, Liquescence/Liquidity (double CD set), release. Contact Rick at 970-216-4168
Next time someone repeats the canard about the "Cool Schools" emotionlessness and undemonstrativeness, play them Jimmy's arrangement of Sweet Georgia Brown and see if theyre not on their seats edge by the end of a Halperin solo.
Jimmy has consulted with world class violinist, Ruggiero Ricci to arrange all 24 of Paganini's Caprices for solo soprano sax. He has since committed those 24 Caprices to memory and can play them through in 70min.
A head full of music.
Hands full of music.
A heart full of music.
