CD Information

Yanagisawa Saxophone Artist B. J. Jansen has released his CD "RONIN"!

His first new release in nearly two years, Yanagisawa Baritone Sax Artist, B.J. Jansen returns with a new quartet album, "RONIN," on (ARC) Artists Recording Collective. "RONIN" hits the streets March 4th, 2014 and features;
Mamiko Watanabe on piano, Mike Boone on bass, Amanda Ruzza on bass, Chris Beck on drums and Dorota Piotrowska on drums. "A baritone saxophone-led quartet takes a lot of guts. The beauty of this recording lies in both its period approach and the superb sonics captured by modern recording. Jansen... proves his chops on his solid original repertoire. Ronin is a solid bop outing." - AllAboutJazz
