Chris Byars, the award winning alto saxophonist, composer, arranger, jazz historian and a 100% native New Yorker set out to “curate the state of jazz to create a sort of time capsule” for this new album. What Byars successfully presents here is the genuine creative aspiration that prevails in world’s most diverse and competitive artistic environment.
