Tucker Antell is one of a new breed of super musician.
Jerry Bergonzi

For Boston saxophonist Tucker Antell's debut recording, he looks to the rich tradition of the tenor sax/B3 Organ groups and his many influences and experiences with Jazz, Blues and groove-infused music he's spent the last decade performing across New England. His virtuosity on the tenor saxophone is undeniable, while his passion for this particular fusion of Jazz & Blues comes across in a fun and honest way: singable melodies, danceable grooves, and stretched, creative improvisations, with a few twists and turns along the way. From the churning shuffle groove of "Grime Scene," to the Cubist re-working of Monk's "I Mean You," or the unfurling slippery funk of "Madness," Antell's music strikes a fine balance between the head and the soul.

Reviews of Grime Scene

All About Jazz (Dan Bilawsky)
Tucker Antell knows how to make an entrance. The two-minute solo stand that opens Grime Scene finds his stentorian saxophone blowing brusque and fluid across a wide swath. It plays like a strong man's lament-cum-catharsis, but what follows on the same track is something else: a bluesy shuffle with foot tap-inducing properties. This marks the first ...
