“Discover The Present ” Album Release Party – Altin Sencalar

April 26 @ 6:00 pm

- $12.00 – $25.00

“His tone sounds full-bodied, weighty, and expansive, something to sink into, a massage for the soul. Sencalar’s improvisations on these and the rest of the cuts are rich in detail, balancing in-the-moment discoveries and adherence to the demands of the material. ”

— DAVID A ORTHMANN, ALL ABOUT JAZZ

Hailed by Stereophile Magazine for “sound[ing] like 21st-century grandchildren of JJ Johnson and Kai Winding” (with his co-bandleader Chris Glassman) and praised by the International Trombone Associations Journal for his “virtuosity [and] melodic and harmonic mastery,” Altin Sencalar is in high demand across the country as a performer, educator, and composer.
