Legendary saxophonist Giuseppi Logan will release his first album in 45 years on NYC's Tompkins Square label, February 23, 2009.

Logan recorded two albums for the ESP label in the mid-60's featuring Eddie Gomez, Don Pullen and Milford Graves; The Giuseppi Logan Quartet and More.

The Giuseppi Logan Quintet, recorded in September 2009, reunites Logan with two of his closest collaborators from the '60's--pianist Dave Burrell and drummer Warren Smith. Also joining him on the session are Francois Grillot, bass and Matt Lavelle, trumpet and bass clarinet. The album features five brand new Logan compositions, and several standards.

Logan will maintain his rigorous schedule of appearances with his group, as well as his steady solo gig in the NW corner of Tompkins Square Park.



The Giuseppi Logan Quintet (TSQ 2325)
Release Date: February 23, 2010
Tompkins Square label is distributed in North America by Fontana Distribution, and by Cargo UK for Europe.
