Recent Auditions -Odean Pope

OPope album cover
Originally uploaded by mike e.bop
An admitted Coltrane disciple, who further cut his musical teeth withthe late Max Roach, Odean Pope has always been his own man
This flawless 2006 live recording shows the absolute cohesion and oneness of his multi-layered saxophone choir, and not even the addition of guest stars Joe Lovano, James Carter and the late Michael Brecker disrupt the equilibrium.
A recorded master class in composition, execution and band leadership
