New tunes and a new approach to the sax after 10 years of practising.

Rob Frayne is back, with a tenor sax.  For Rob Frayne, his instrument is, and always will be, the tenor sax.  But this Friday will be the first time he’s played the sax in a concert in almost a decade, after a long period of recovery and readjustment. He’ll be at GigSpace, performing with long-time friends, and his tenor sax will add to the strong Dizzy Gillespie-influenced groove in the music he’s written for the show.”
