For 14 years, the popular Guitars & Saxes has been a staple of the smooth jazz summer touring season. This year, for the first time, the tour will be celebrating the spirit of the holidays with the Guitars & Saxes Christmas tour. On board for the first edition, which is expected to be an annual event, are saxophonist Richard Elliot, guitarist Paul Brown and saxophonist Jessy J.
Elliot has performed on the regular Guitars & Saxes tour, while Brown will be making his debut. For Jessy J, itís a step up, as she not a starring member of this yearís summer tour with Jeff Golub, Peter White, Gerald Albright and Jeff Lorber, but instead as a member of the backing band.
The tour, which is now adding dates, is scheduled to open on November 29th in Nevada with a special, one-time-only guest Ė vocalist Bobby Caldwell. Other shows are in Seattle and San Ramon, California.Posted by Brian Soergel at September 10, 2008 5:46 PM
