Jazz musician Dayna Stephens loves the saxophone. In fact, on his recently released ninth album, Liberty, he plays four different saxes, really showing the listener the full range of the instrument. This is also his first record on which he’s led such a minimalistic trio. He taps into the looser, more experimental side of jazz, with each member meditating on how they can approach their instrument slightly differently than anyone before them. He brings his band (Ben Street & Eric Harland) with him to the Kuumbwa to show off the beauty of this dynamic record.
