Cover for SAVE BIGRuss Johnson:
Save Big
(OmniTone 12205)

Here's a new American classic: jazz that's wonderfully fresh, clean, inventive, vibrant, accessible improvised music that builds on and extends the American jazz tradition in the way Jack Kerouac, Aaron Copland, Ansel Adams, and Frank Lloyd Wright advanced art in their respective fields.  From musical recollections of grandeurous wide open spaces to classic jam-packed smoky jazz clubs — and all the multi-culti crossroads in between — Johnson and his crackshot quartet make Save Big a thrilling musical event.
