Alto saxophonist Kenny Shanker is back with his third studio album, The Witching Hour. With his longtime rhythm section, Mike Eckroth (piano), Daisuke Abe (guitar), Yoshi Waki (bass), and Brian Fishler (drums), Shanker presents twelve exciting new original compositions. Like his previous releases, Shanker blends hard-hitting, straight-ahead jazz with traces of various other genres, including classical and rock. The Witching Hour is full of memorable melodies, electrifying solos, and enough twists and turns to make it a joy to listen to over and over from beginning to end.
