J.D. Allen with the George Caldwell Quartet

Hailed by The New York Times as “a tenor saxophonist with an enigmatic, elegant and hard driving style,” J. D. Allen is a bright light on today’s international jazz scene. His unique and compelling voice on the instrument has earned Allen years of critical attention. Originally from Detroit, Allen’s apprenticeship, anchored by his lengthy tenure with Betty Carter, occurred largely in New York, where he worked with legends Lester Bowie, George Cables, Ron Carter, Louis Hayes, Frank Foster Big Band, Rufus Reid, and Geri Allen.
