Heard this guy for the first time on "Kenny's Hang" (from Wayne Goines' "Chronicles of Carmella"):

Sounds like a great blend of the tenor tradition, with really together articulation & nuanced intonation that fits the music. Apparently he's also played alto with the Kansas City Boulevard Big Band (although on the recording "Stellar," Eric Marienthal guests on alto, so likely Craig isn't featured there)...I'd like to hear him on alto:

He's also on Dan Gailey's Jazz Orchestra recording "What Did You Dream," & I'm looking forward to hearing this disc, as the clips sound great:

Anyone know more about Craig or Dan?

Not an evaluation at all on Craig Treinen's playing, but I don't think he is on "What Did You Dream?" It is a great album that I would recommend folks pick up in any case.

Dan Gailey is a great saxophonist, educator and composer who teaches at the University of Kansas. All of his charts are fantastic and are available at UNC Jazz Press.

Thanks!

You're right, pjims, my bad...Dan Gailey plays on the Kansas Boulevard sides, but Craig isn't on What Did You Dream...good catch.

I just got the first Boulevard disc, & was happy to see Craig featured on alto on There Will Never Be Another You.

Bill Caldwell takes all of the tenor solos, on most of the cuts, & he sounds great!
