Kenny Garrett  Pushing The World Away  Mack Avenue One of the greatest saxophonists of the post-bop era is Kenny Garrett; his newest recording Pushing the World Away for Mack Avenue Records is a testimony to his versatile skills. The title is Kenny’s way of letting us know he didn’t let his many distractions and commitments keep him from producing one of the best CDs of his splendid career.
