“Mr. Preminger designs a different kind of sound for each note, an individual destiny and story.”
The New York Times

Noah Preminger, just 29, has recorded numerous critically acclaimed albums and is steadily listed as one of the best tenor saxophonists by critics and readers on the annual Downbeat Poll. Two new recordings are expected by early 2016, including an all-ballads date on the French vinyl label, Newvelle Records, and a recording inspired by Delta Mississippi Blues musicians, Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground. 

Born in 1986, Preminger grew up in Canton, Connecticut. Preminger released his debut album, Dry Bridge Road, just after his 21st birthday and was named Debut of the Year in the Village Voice Critics Poll.

Preminger’s second and third albums as a leader came in 2011 and 2013 while signed to the Palmetto Records label. The Boston Globesays Preminger’s music is “… impressive, challenging, and beautiful.” The saxophonist has performed on key stages from the US to Europe and Australia, and has played and/or recorded with the likes of Billy Hart, Dave Holland, John Patitucci, Fred Hersch, Dave Douglas, Rudy Royston, Rob Garcia, Joe Lovano, Victor Lewis, John and Bucky Pizzarelli, Billy Drummond, George Cables, Roscoe Mitchell, and Dr. Eddie Henderson.

Jon Sue-Ho has been standing up since he was a baby and making people laugh for almost as long.  His clean (but by no means squeaky) comedy reaches everything from ethnic ambiguity, super heroes, how karaoke is like fairy tales, pep talks in a Scottish accent, stuff his mom says, and, most importantly, bears.
