Billy Kerr: The Eagle Has Landed...eh?

By Published: May 1, 1999
Billy Kerr was a member of the New York Saxophone Quartet for 18 years. He is one of many talented journeymen jazz musicians who carry on a lifelong affair with the music, yet never gain widespread public acclaim. On The Eagle Has Landed...eh? this Brooklyn-born tenor/clarinetist, who now lives in Montreal, showcases his considerable composing, arranging and soloing talents. Kerr's tenor tone is attractively wide-ranging and his delicate touch on the clarinet is beautifully rendered on a pair of ballads, The Birthday Waltz and Love Of My Life. A solid mainstream date.
