Jim Snidero Quintet pays tribute to the great Phil Woods, who passed
away on September 29th. Snidero first met Woods in 1975, then studied
with him until moving to New York in the early 1980's. They kept in
contact over the years, with their last visit being in June.
"Phil was the guy that inspired me to commit to the music, and for that, I will always be grateful" states Snidero. "Without question, he was one of the greatest jazz musicians and alto saxophone players of all time".
Coincidently, a feature article appearing in the June issue of Jazz Times focused on the long-time relationship between this grand master and understudy. Included in the article are many words of advice from Woods ("Don't do this unless you've got the burn in your belly") and Woods stating that Snidero is now a "masterful artist".
