Jon Gordon: Passing It On

Click the play button to listen

Saxophonist Jon Gordon's new recording, 7th Ave South takes its name from the iconic club owned by the Brecker Brothers that closed its doors in 1987. The title of the album is emblematic of a time that shaped Jon as a musician as a high school student in NYC in the '80s. In this episode of LINER NOTES he pays homage to the people, the musicians, and the clubs that shaped his life and the importance that he places on recreating the generosity that he experienced for the students and musicians that are currently part of his life. This episode features music from Jon Gordon's new recording, 7th Ave South (Artist Share).
