Melissa Aldana (tenor sax) – Lage Lund (guitar) – Josh Ginsburg (bass) – Kush Abadey (drums)
She apprenticed with saxophone legends such as George Garzone and George Coleman, won the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition at age 24, and three years ago, on her album Back Home, she paid tribute to her all-time hero Sonny Rollins, whom she subsequently also went on to interview. In other words: Chilean-born Melissa Aldana knows jazz history (up close) and, at a young age, she has already started writing some jazz history herself.
