GROUNDBLUE MICHAEL PEDICIN
Why Stop Now Ubuntu: Whether you know it or not you’ve been digging Pedicin’s sax for 45 years whether as a member of the Philly International house band or as a side man for everyone from Stevie Wonder to David Bowie. At 65, he’s still searching for the ultimate chord, and if we’re lucky, he’ll never find it. With a jazz suite inspired by the happenings in Newtown, this soulful set shows an artist continuing to hit new high spots while at the top of his game. Contemporary sax by a cat that knows how to get on the radio but isn’t jonesing for it, this is a wonderful ear opener that hits hard and fast (even when he slows it down). Well done.
