...tasteful, classically tinged jazz that swings delightfully.
Ric Bang, Jazz Scan

With an eclectic mix of nine originals and one thoroughly re-envisioned standard, saxophonist and multi-reedist Todd DelGiudice presents an inspired set for his first recording on OA2 Records. Joined by a veteran Seattle trio including John Hansen on piano, bassist Jon Hamar and drummer Byron Vannoy, DelGiudice explores his wide-ranging musical influences, creating a unique & varied yet fully cohesive story. Raised in South Florida, DelGiudice has been an active member of the Miami, New York and Oregon jazz scenes. He was a member of one of Red Rodney's last working quintets and has performed with Maria Schneider, John Fedchock, and Ingrid Jensen, among many others.
