Jim Snidero Quartet

THE JIM SNIDERO QUARTET celebrates the release of "Waves of Calm" on the Highnote/Savant record label.

Alto Saxophonist/Composer JIM SNIDERO brings deep reflection and restrained maturity to the album, which represents a son's reflection on his father’s ongoing struggle with Parkinson’s Disease.

Over the past thirty-five years, alto saxophonist, composer, arranger, author and educator, Jim Snidero has been called both a “master musician” and “alto saxophone virtuoso” by Downbeat Magazine, and placed in the 2017 Downbeat Critic’s Poll, demonstrating his continued impact on the international jazz scene.

The last ten years have delivered a series of well-received dates for the prominent Savant record label. Snidero initially focused on a guitar-centric line-up, among other things teaming up with young modernists like bassist Linda Oh and drummer Rudy Royston for dazzling efforts like Stream Of Consciousness (Savant, 2013), resulting in Snidero placing in Downbeat Magazine’s 2014 Reader’s poll. He then pivoted to piano trio with Main Street (Savant, 2015) and quintet with MD66 (Savant, 2016) inspired by Miles’ Davis’ second great quintet, resulting in a critic’s pick in Jazz Times magazine.

In 1996, Jim Snidero revolutionized jazz education by penning the first Jazz Conception books. These best-selling books eventually spawned an Easy and Intermediate series that filled in the gaps for players at different levels; to date, the Jazz Conception series contains over forty books, and it remains an incredibly popular jazz education resource.  In 2013, Snidero furthered his role as a jazz education visionary, creating The Jazz Conception Company, which explores a new frontier in the technology-meets-education world.
