“Saul is a consummate musician, a person who is aware of the feelings of others and a person who is gentle in that sense.

Roberta DeNicola, a favorite of musicians on New York City's downtown and experimental jazz scenes, has very broad taste in jazz--from straight-ahead to out--but the more out it is, the more she needs to experience it live.
