Erroll Foldes brings his unique and exciting one-man jazz ensemble, "Sax & Trax," to Vino Di Sedona on Friday, Feb. 26, 7-10 p.m.
A native of New York and a lifelong musician, Foldes has performed on saxophone both as a sideman and with his own small jazz groups since moving to Sedona in 2003.
Using his skills on keyboards, guitar and percussion, as well as a knack for arranging and recording, Foldes creates a realistic-sounding, virtual rhythm section, with which he performs live on vocals and sax.
Many fans have noted that, with his choice of repertoire, smooth vocals and a sax style that harkens back to the bebop era, Foldes conjures the mood of a 1950's New York City night club.
Drawing exclusively from the Great American Songbook, he presents an eclectic mix of lightly swinging numbers and dreamy ballads.
Foldes said, "Being totally independent is wonderful, and I just have loads of fun... listeners feel my passion for jazz and they love the results ... this kind of music is truly timeless!"
