Berks Jazz Fest 2014: The Sax Pack

Sunday afternoon, there were two concerts in a row. Sax Pack was the first to play, the current lineup consists of Jeff Kashiwa, Steve Cole and newcomer Marcus Anderson on saxes (replacing Kim Waters), they kept the special chemistry and camaraderie that always has been a trademark of this band. They did several songs from the Sax Pack catalog, in addition some songs from the current album of Marcus Anderson entitled Style Meets Substance were featured. They kicked off the show as a group, during the show, the individual players did their thing, most notably Jeff Kashiwa with his "Hyde Park (The Ah, Ooh Song)" complete with audience participation was a crowd pleaser. This was an entraining show by three consummate saxophone players.
