From the press blurb for the Berks Jazz Fest ;

Assuredly, Tim Price, Ryan Anselmi's Soulful Tenor Madness is 100-percent old-school jazz and blues, with a heavy dose of soul jazz.

Tim's deep roots in organ group jazz point back to his road time paying his dues playing the chiltin'-circuit with well known jazz organists through the United States.

Tim is no stranger to Berks Jazz Fest -- he lives locally but plays globally.

Tim teaches at the prestigious New School University Jazz Department, as well as New York Jazz Workshop School Of Music, and Long Island University- Jazz Dept-Brooklyn Campus.He is one of the most popular Selmer Saxophone and Rico Reeds clinicians, and is published by Hal Leonard. He travels the globe with his music.

This band is a working unit, playing on a regular basis in jazz clubs New York City. Ryan Anselmi is originally from Kansas City where he worked with jazz legend Jay McShann (Jay McShann was also known as Hootie, and in the golden age of jazz McShann featured a young Charlie Parker) before coming East to attend The New School University Jazz program where he met Tim Price as one of his teachers there. The rapport was instant. Ryan is also a part of jazz legend Junior Mance's Quintet and has toured Europe recently with Junior and James Moody.

The band includes Tim, Ryan and Tom Abbott on tenor saxes, Kim Garey on drums and Brad Whiteley on organ. Tom Abbott, Brad Whiteley and Kim Garey are all prominent and highly skilled working jazz musicians.


I'm really looking forward to this hit, the band is a working band in NYC, forover 3 years, and I'm proud of them. Hope to see you there. Thanks.
