Summer Jazz Concert Series: Composer's Showcase
George's Majestic Lounge
Savage's group has the sound that was familiar during the 1960's with small groups lead by James Mobley, Johnny Griffin, Bobby Timmons and other talented purveyors of the bop style of that time. Most of the solos are taken by Savage although Al Bent's trombone and Bob Johnson's soprano sax are prominent on "Thai Forest".
Despite it's menacing title and cover, Soothes the Savage Beast is almost an hour of well written compositions engagingly played by a group of musicians who clearly know what they're doing.
