The real heavyweights in jazz are those who have a the bite and the breeze, the ballistics and the ballads. Saxophonist Dayna Stephens fits this description beautifully. He has developed into one of the most important saxophone stylists playing today. For his new recording, Peace, Stephens focuses on interpreting intimate and heartfelt compositions that harken to the major ballad players, like Lester Young, Ben Webster and Dexter Gordon. For the recording, Stephens recruits some of the most important musicians in jazz, including pianist Brad Mehldau, guitarist Julian Lage, bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Eric Harland.
