 “One of the more exciting young tenor saxophonists today” says The New York Times. Twice Grammy-nominated for Best Improvised Jazz solo, saxophonist and composer Melissa Aldana has garnered international recognition for her visionary work as a band leader, as well as her bold and often meditative compositions. Signed to Blue Note Records, she released the acclaimed "12 Stars" on the storied label in 2022. In naming her earlier "Visions" among the best albums of 2019 for NPR Music, critic Nate Chinen wrote that Aldana “has the elusive ability to balance technical achievement against a rich emotional palette.”
