Richard Page has returned to Avant-Garde Bar every Tuesday night, to deliver some hard-hitting sax-based tunes. His newest group, with Alex Moxon on guitar, JP Lapensee on electric bass, and Jamie Holmes on drums and cymbals, has been paying homage to some of Sonny Rollins' work recently. As regular listeners know, you'll hear plenty of new and original material by Richard. And while Richard doesn't have a new sax this month, he does have a new mouthpiece, and the combo sounds great.
