She just won the Monk Institute competition on saxophone. She’s one of the great talents in improvised music today, with a beautiful mellow tone and an unmatched ability to build her solos with care, and play every note like she MEANS it. And she’s cool as hell.
I’m quite lucky to have her playing on all the tracks on my debut full length album. So this week, I’m offering it at a discount on Bandcamp: FIVE DOLLARS! You can listen to it right here on this page, and click “Buy.” And make sure to “like” Melissa’s page: http://www.facebook.com/melissa.aldana.3958
