Jeff Lederer is a saxophonist/clarinetist whose unique musical language balances the values of ecstatic expression and swing. His new band, “Sunwatcher” is a musical love letter to Albert Ayler which evokes Albert's spirit without mimicry of his repetoire or style. Along with Jamie Saft (piano), Avery Sharpe(bass), and Matt Wilson (drums), Lederer reaches for the sounds of the sacred and the profane. His playing has recently been described as “speaking in tongues” (Hartford Courant) and “slaying dragons” (NPR).

Lederer is well known as a longtime member of the Matt Wilson Quartet and the leader of his own radically left-wing Christian Rock Band Shakers n' Bakers.
