Saxophonist Bob Mintzer is best known as a member of the Yellowjackets, rightfully so as he has been with the popular group for over 20 years. Mintzer has also led his own big band as well since about 1985.

Miami based,  supremely skilled saxophonist Ed Calle is one of So Florida’s best kept secrets, this despite being a seasoned veteran,  a highly respected music professor, a Latin Grammy® award winner, a five-time Grammy® nominee and perhaps the most recorded saxophonist ever with over 1,300 appearances in a wide variety of music genres. As impressive as his credentials may be, the best trait of Eduardo Calle is his playing! That’s is what makes him be in such high demand and so respected by his peers.
