Eye on Kristen Strom

The Eye Entertainment Guide of the San Jose Mercury News has a very nice article / interview on Bay Area Saxophonist Kristen Strom.

The San Jose saxophonist has been a mainstay on the Bay Area music scene for nearly two decades, and her new album, "Intention'' (Open Path Music), reveals an artist whose musical world is predicated upon the primacy of beautifully rendered melodies.

"The project is melody-based,'' says Strom, who celebrates the release of "Intention'' on Saturday at Boas Club Elite in Cupertino. "I wanted the beauty of melody and tone, to capture all the instruments with the best sound possible.''

She performs with the group featured on the album, including her husband, guitarist Scott Sorkin, and Adam Shulman on keyboards, drummer Jason Lewis and
bassist John Shifflett. A number of guest musicians will also be on hand, including Pruitt.

The news article is here and Kristen's personal website is here.
