Grammy Award winning saxophonist and composer Joe Lovano stands alone at the vanguard of large and small group jazz. From his Grammy Award nominated work with the WDR Big Band & Rundfunk Orchestra, Symphonica, to his role as Gary Burton Chair of Jazz Performance at Berklee College of Music, the Cleveland native fearlessly challenges and pushes the conceptual and thematic choices he makes in a quest for new modes of artistic expression and new takes on what defines the jazz idiom. Lovano won a Grammy Award for his 52nd Street Themes and received 14 other nominations, he has won DownBeat Magazine’s Critics and Readers Polls countless times as Tenor Saxophonist, Musician of the Year, Jazz Album of the Year and Triple Crowns from DownBeat. He has also gotten numerous awards from JazzTimes and the Jazz Journalists Association for Tenor Saxophone, Album of the Year, and Musician of the Year.
