Jazz Video Guy Bret Primack announces the debut of his new series, the Saxophone Summit Podcasts. The seven-part documentary focuses on their second Telarc recording, “Seraphic Light," which drops on June 3. The group, featuring David Liebman, Joe Lovano and Ravi Coltrane plays Birdland in New York June 10 to 14.

The seven films, available starting today on YouTube and iTunes include:

MAY 22 :: Message to Mike - Michael Brecker
JUN 5 :: Cosmic Saxman - David Liebman
JUN 19 :: Our Daily Joe - Joe Lovano
JUL 3 :: Into the Light - Ravi Coltrane
JUL 17 :: That's Phil Markowitz - Phil Markowitz
JUL 31 :: All About Cecil - Cecil McBee
AUG 14 :: Jabali - Billy Hart

“I am really proud and inspired to be a part of the Saxophone Summit along side some of the most creative soulful musicians in Jazz," reports Joe Lovano. “This series of podcasts put together by Bret Primack gives everyone a rare view into some very intimate and private moments in the recording studio usually reserved just for us."

Bret explains: “These films offer portraits of seven truly remarkable people, creating music guaranteed to survive the ages. Although Michael wasn't present, brother Randy joined the group for several tunes including his own 'Message to Mike,' so one of the portraits is a tribute to the late saxman and founding member of the group."

Joe believes “we were very relaxed and comfortable with Bret and his approach in documenting the session. I'm sure you will feel the Celebration and Reflection of Michael Brecker and Alice Coltrane in the music and in these masterfully done short films."
