After a POWERFUL PERFORMANCE and SOLD OUT SHOW in 2013, we are bringing back one of the baddest sax players on the East Coast, James “Saxsmo” Gates.
The passionate search for perfection describes James Saxsmo Gates and his career as a top-notch jazz musician. From his experiences performing with Art Blakey, Larry Carlton, Jeff Lorber, Alex Bugnon, Cyrus Chestnut, Chris Botti, Billy Kilson, Terrance Blanchard and many others, comes a smooth, yet blazing style and presentation. Gates Wide Open is the third commercial release for Saxsmo as a solo artist and is the beginning of a new era for Saxsmo.
