Read Downbeat’s review of the show here!

Prodigious young reed player Max Goldschmid from the University of Arizona Jazz Quintet sat in on one number per set, including “Perdido,” one of the best grooves of the evening. Green was particularly strong on this one—playing parallel keyboard lines with a hard, percussive attack and concluding with a sublime whisper. Goldschmid gave a fine alto saxophone showing next to Peplowski’s superlative tenor on “Who, Me?” The young man’s better-than-respectable showing bodes well for him, the series, Tucson and the music itself.
