Saxophonist George Garzone is a member of The Fringe, a jazz trio founded in 1972 that includes bassist John Lockwood and drummer Bob Gullotti, that performs regularly in the Boston area and has toured Portugal. The group has released three albums. Garzone began on the tenor saxophone when he was six, played in a family band and attended music school in Boston. In addition, Garzone has guested in many situations, touring Europe with Jamaaladeen Tacuma and gigging with Danilo Perez, Joe Lovano, Jack DeJohnette, Rachel Z and John Patitucci, among others. In 1995 he recorded a tribute to Stan Getz on NYC called "Alone". A year later, he recorded Four's and Two's with compatriot Joe Lovano, which earned him four stars in Down Beat. In 1999, Garzone returned with Moodiology, and in summer 2000, the album Fringe in New York was released. Garzone is a member of the Grammy-winning Joe Lovano Nonet, performing and recording with this group at the Village Vanguard in September 2002.
When Michael Brecker was asked what it was like to be the world's best sax player, he replied "Ask George Garzone...!".
