Marion Meadows' saxophone will replace Steve Cole's later this year during the Sax Pack festival started by another saxophonist, Jeff Kashiwa.
The new edition of Sax Pack � which this year features saxophonists Jeff Kashiwa, Kim Waters and new addition Marion Meadows � will begins its U.S. tour April 17 at the Seabreeze Jazz Festival in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
Two other dates are confirmed � May 27 at the JazzTrax Lake Tahoe Smooth Summer Jazz Festival and July 2 at the Jazz Under the Stars festival in Las Vegas.
�Marion is a powerful presence on stage,� says Kashiwa, who created the Sax Pack last year. �He can captivate an audience with his sense of style and groove.�
Steve Cole, an original member of the Sax Pack, will perform his last gig as part of the tour March 19 at the Berks Jazz Festival in Pennsylvania.
