Gary Smulyan won the Down Beat 2019 Readers Poll Baritone Saxophonist of the Year award—one of many honors. He is a decades-long member of the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Joe Lovano’s large group and veteran of big bands led by Woody Herman and Thad Jones-Mel Lewis. This concert celebrates the release of Smulyan’s 14th recording as a leader, Night Talk: The Alec Wilder Songbook, an entire CD of songs by the iconic American composer Alec Wilder, including “I’ll Be Around” and “Moon and Sand.”
