Dale Fielder Quartet at Katy Geissert Civic Center Library
Dale Fielder releases his 19th CD: "Scene From A Dream", The Dale Fielder/Geri Allen Session NYC 1983. The long overdue release of “Scene From A Dream” is a historic event. It was not only the recording debut as a leader of saxophonist Dale Fielder but it contains valuable contributions by the late great pianist Geri Allen from 1983. The CD release takes place at the Dale Fielder Quartet's monthly residency at the historic landmark hotel, Hotel Normandie, Saturday, January 20, 2018. The DFQ features Dale Fielder-saxophones, Jane Getz-piano, Bill Markus-bass, Thomas White-drums and featured vocalist: Rita Edmond.
Besides performing selections from the new CD they will be playing tunes from the DFQ's 20th Anniversary 2-disc CD, "Resilience"!
"Dale Fielder has created an approach to the baritone sax that is entirely his own. His tone is rich and vibrant, his phrasing is sharp and fluid and his solos are well-constructed yet endlessly inventive. The telepathic-like interaction the band maintains is one of the factors that allows this group to rise a notch above in a field that abounds in great groups. If you are a fan of the baritone saxophone, you will absolutely love this album. Fielder’s chops are unequaled. I honestly don’t believe that there is a better proponent of the instrument alive and playing today. If you’ve never been a bari fan, the explosive creativity and enormous passion displayed on this recording may very well change your mind."
