The new work by American veteran tenor saxophone player Rick Margitza, who has also been in the Miles Davis band, is dedicated to those who have died in the last decade or so.
From his family of nephews and nieces to fellow musicians such as Gerry Niewood and Michael Brecker, to honor those who have died in recent years, instead of sticking to the deep melancholy and loss of their deaths, their lives It seems that he recorded this work to celebrate.
Based on a quartet with French pianist Manuel Rocheman who participated in the recording of “Magic Lights”, the song features guitar, percussion and vocals.
It is a masterpiece that fully demonstrates Margitza’s ability to perform, compose, arrange, and produce.
