Brian Landrus – kismet from the album Mirage [2013]

What do you get when you combine Downbeat magazine’s thrice winning Rising Star award winner Brian Landrus, a Selmer series II Bass saxophone and a microphone? You get a hauntingly wonderful moment of expression on an instrument usually known for its subtlety. This is not to be confused with the exotic sounds of Collin Stetson or the basso profondo of Adrian Rollini. Brian is a skilled baritone saxophonist and clarinetist. This track is from his fourth coming album due to out on June 25th 2013. If you have the ability to see him perform with Esperanza Spalding while on tour.

TAKE AWAY: I am looking forward to getting this album when it comes out.
