Joe Lovano

We all know that saxophonist Joe Lovano is one of the most versatile players on the scene, yet we don't tend to think of him scrapping in the avant-garde trenches so much these days. What makes this Stone run compelling, then, is the way it's likely to pull Lovano into novel situations—not least what could be an epic duo session with percussion shaman Milford Graves on Dec 6.
