    Check out alto saxophonist Jaleel Shaw and his quintet live from the WBGO Performance Studio.  Shaw plays tracks from his recently released Optimism CD, which features Lage Lund (Guitar), Robert Glasper (Piano), Joe Martin (Bass), Johnathan Blake (Drums) and Jeremy Pelt (Trumpet & Flugel Horn).  Optimism has received rave reviews and it's not hard to understand why.  Shaw has proven to be a stellar musician and talented composer, winning the 2008 ASCAP Young Jazz Composers Award. 

    Listen to the Jaleel Shaw Quintet's live in-studio performance here and now.

     Performers:

  • Jaleel Shaw: alto saxophone
