Parker Jazz Club Presents... Saxophonist Mark O'Connor! Cover

"O'Connor's tenor [saxophone] is meaty enough to channel the jazz tradition, but modern enough to capture the yearning vulnerabilities of his own time" - Neil Tesser, Chicago Jazz Music Examiner. Indianapolis-based saxophonist Mark O’Connor, a veteran of the Midwest jazz scene since 1996, brings his exciting and fiery quartet featuring Austin jazz luminaries Tommy Howard (guitar), James Suter (bass), and Kyle Thompson (drums) to Parker Jazz Club! They will be playing music from O'Connor's upcoming release, Like a Kid Again, as well as music from O’Connor’s critically acclaimed CDs, Suspended Reality and Mirage. https://mocjazz.bandcamp.com/album/suspended-reality In addition to performing with his groups at such venues as the Chicago Jazz Festival, The Jazz Kitchen (Indy), the Jazz Showcase (Chicago), and the Elephant Room, O'Connor has shared the stage with Tamir Hendelman, Bob Mintzer, Emmet Cohen, Jeff Hamilton, Dan Haerle and many more.
