New Haven's own Wayne Escoffery is a masterful saxophonist who has become known for his beautiful sound, impressive technique, versatility, and professionalism. Escoffery's command of the sax is impressive, able to navigate broad intervallic leaps with a sound that is robust in all registers. His writing favours the modal exploration of post-Coltrane territory, but is more concise.

Escoffery has had a busy year touring with The Tom Harrell Quintet, Ben Riley's Monk Legacy Septet, The Mingus Band, Jazz at Lincoln Center's Music of the Masters, and The Carolyn Leonhart Group. He recently recorded music for two CDs as a leader - a live recording at Smoke Jazz Club in New York City to be released on Savant Records early 2007, and a studio recording to be released on Nagel-Heyer Records mid 2007.

The Firehouse 12 concert will feature music from both upcoming CDs. Joining Escoffery will be Toru Dodo on Piano, Han's Glawischnig on Bass and Jason Brown on Drums, all of whom will appear on his next Nagel-Heyer release, "If Dreams Come True".
