10. BRAD GOODE QUARTET with RON BLAKE @ DAZZLE | FRI, 11/9 Every so often Dazzle pairs great local talent with stellar nationally known players. This time around, outstanding local trumpeter Brad Goode and his group team up with New York-based tenor and soprano sax player Ron Blake, who has a few records under his own name, in addition to having appeared on more than fifty albums with the likes of Roy Hargrove and Art Farmer. On 2008's Shayari, Blake, who is joined by Jack DeJohnette, Christian McBride and Regina Carter, shows the wide-toned saxophonist's range, including lyrical phrasing on ballads to weaving some intricate lines on up-tempo cuts.
