Described as being "soulful, swinging and yet utterly modern," New York based alto saxophonist Jim Snidero's music seems to encapsulate what is both unique and compelling about jazz. Called an "alto sax virtuoso" and "master musician" (Downbeat), as well as a "genuinely significant figure in jazz composition" (Penguin Guide to Jazz), Snidero is a veteran recording artist (16 leader recordings to date) and sideman (Mingus Big Band, Frank Sinatra, Eddie Palmieri, Jack McDuff, etc...) that can truly say "been there, done that." Snidero exercises his composing chops on Interface as well, penning all the tunes on the set list and drawing an astonishing array of color from the sax-guitar-bass-drums quartet combination, including the rarely used acoustic guitar.
