Shawn Maxwell is an amazing saxophonist and composer based in Chicago and his new record comes out on FRIDAY! We met back in 2000 on a cruise ship and have kept in touch over the years. He wrote 17 pieces and sent them to 30 musicians to record at home. I played on “Breathe”, a piece he wrote in memory of George Floyd. he sent me a lead sheet and the saxophone part and encouraged me to play whatever I felt. I am really happy with how it turned out and the record is really wonderful. Nick Eipers did a phenomenal job mixing this project. Check it out Shawn’s Bandcamp page!
