Ronnie Cuber: "Live At JazzFest Berlin"
Ronnie Cuber has always been a force on the baritone sax; from his early work with Maynard Ferguson, George Benson, Lionel Hampton and Woody Herman, to his later work with the Mingus Big Band and leading his own firey groups.
On his new cd, Cuber shares the Berlin stage with pianist Kenny Drew, Jr., bassist Reuben Rodriguez and drummer Ben Perowsky. As Ronnie says, “In a live recording situation, you are not so aware of the technical aspects. You can just let go and enjoy playing for the audience.” From his own music to tunes by Horace Silver, Clare Fischer and Herbie Hancock, this is the joy of moments captured live when the musicians are all as one and the music an inspired delight.
