Long regarded as a living legend among fellow musicians, saxophonist Bunky Green had to wait many years before his relatively obscure music came to the attention of a wider audience. The musician from Milwaukee, Wisconsin once shared the stage with jazz modernists like Andrew Hill and Charles Mingus. Influenced by the music of Charlie Parker and Eric Dolphy, Green developed his own expressive, fiery style that was much praised among fellow saxophonists. In the early seventies, however, he disappeared from the jazz stage and mainly devoted his time to teaching jazz. For a time he was chair of the International Association of Jazz Educators. Recordings of Bunky Green are rare. His album Another Place, made in 2006 under the direction of his great admirer Steve Coleman, was his first recording in seventeen years. Nonetheless, his comeback was greeted with rave reviews in every authoritative jazz magazine. Green performs with the trio of the talented Belgian pianist Eric Legnini who has already recorded albums with the saxophonists Joe Lovano and Stefano di Battista.
