Saxophonist Steve Cole is one of the most celebrated players in contemporary jazz.
The Chicago native exploded onto the scene in 1998 with the album “Stay Awhile” that was produced by fellow Chicagoan Brian Culbertson. The disc scored two #1 hits and earned Cole the Oasis Smooth Jazz Award for best new artist shortly before his sophomore set, “Between Us,” was released in 2000. His catchy singles made him an instant radio favorite and he cranked them out with regularity on subsequent albums “NY LA” (2003), “Spin” (2005) and “True” (2006).
In addition to his work as solo artist, Steve has performed/recorded, with Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Boz Scaggs, Larry Carlton, Jeff Lorber, Jim Peterik, Freddie Cole, Cyrus Chestnut, and KMFDM, and has been a featured soloist with the City of Prague Orchestra, and The Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Steve is also a founding member of The Sax Pack, a stellar sax trio completed by Marcus Anderson and Jeff Kashiwa.
In the 15 years since the release of his debut record, saxophonist Steve Cole has traveled full-circle creatively and arrived back home on his new release, “Pulse,” a 10-song set mixing R&B, contemporary jazz, gospel, blues and pop that he produced with fellow saxman David Mann. The new collection surveying Cole’s musical passions showcases the artist’s affinity for infectious melodies, a wall of horns, and soulful grooves.
The Sax Pack feat. Steve Cole, Jeff Kashiwa, and Marcus Anderson team up with renown guitarist Marc Antoine for shows in Annapolis, MD at Ramshead On Stage on September19th, and Chicago, IL at The Montrose Room on September 20th.
