Vincent Herring, one of the important heirs to the tradition of Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt, and Cannonball Adderley, performs music from his new recording, Night and Day. It features the band appearing here with trumpeter Jeremy Pelt and pianist Mike LeDonne. Herring has long been regarded as one of the foremost alto saxophonists of the modern era, and he has performed with a veritable who’s who of jazz, including Art Blakey, Horace Silver, Dizzy Gillespie, Freddie Hubbard, Donald Byrd, Jack DeJohnette and so many more. The New York City Jazz Record states, “Herring has firmly established himself as one of his generation’s masters.”
