John Petrucelli Quintet: The Way

Read "The Way" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The debut release from saxophonist John Petrucelli packs a mean punch. For his first outing, this Pittsburgh-based tenor man put together a lengthy, two-disc program that showcases his writing and, of greater note, his chops.
