Grace Kelly With Phil Woods: Newport Jazz 2011
The Boston-area alto saxophonist Grace Kelly is 19. The NEA Jazz Master and alto saxophonist Phil Woods is 79. But the ambitious Kelly has already won over many with impressive command of her instrument — including the fleet-fingered Woods, who entered the studio with her (and pianist Monty Alexander) in 2010 to make a recording. Man With The Hat salutes Woods' sartorial trademark; he was Kelly's guest when she brought her working band to the Harbor Stage in Newport.
