Jazz’s greatest improvisers create music that carries an emotional wallop. It’s a lesson that tenor saxophonist Anton Schwartz learned well. He has earned a name for his big tone and his smart and soulful compositions and improvisations.
Over the past two decades Schwartz has performed at many of jazz’s most prestigious clubs and festivals, from Jazz at Lincoln Center and the Blue Note in New York City to Yoshi’s in Oakland and Boston’s Regattabar to Washington D.C.’s Blues Alley and the Monterey Jazz Festival.
He has been a featured soloist with the Boston Pops and artist-in-residence at Harvard University and the Brubeck Institute, as well as a longtime faculty member at the California Jazz Conservatory.
Each of his five CDs as a leader has drawn sterling reviews and strong airplay. His most recent release “Flash Mob” earned a four star Downbeat review and a long run on the jazz radio Top 10 chart, reinforcing his reputation as a passionate and poised improviser and a smart purveyor of captivating melodies.
His top-flight quartet features Josh Nelson (piano, Los Angeles), Michael Glynn (bass, Seattle) and Lorca Hart (drums, San Francisco).
