Michael Zilber is an SF-based saxophonist and composer, and described as “one of the best players and composers around anywhere. Period!” according to NEA JAZZ MASTER and jazz legend David Liebman.
Zilber’s Originals for the Originals, his homage to saxophone giants, was released on February 17, 2017 on Origin Records, featuring jazz greats Dave Kikoski, James Genus and Clarence Penn. Jazz DJ of the year Brad Stone calls it “one of the premier releases of all time on the Origin label. I think it’s going to go down as a historically important recording” and Hobart Taylor of KUCI FM 88.9 says “these are incredible melodies. The compositions are deeply engaging (and) this release is a perfect marriage of head and heart.” You can check it out and pick up a copy right here on this site.
