JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2016 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Cortex at Rochester International Jazz Festival

Cortex, a young quartet appearing at the Lutheran Church in their last of eight US gigs, got into high gear immediately and pretty much stayed there for the whole set. With the drums in the driver's seat and the bass laying out the road map the tenor sax and trumpet burned it with unison parts at the head and tails solos throughout. They were channelling Coltrane and the greats.
