ROBY GLOD - alto & soprano saxophone
"Roby's command of his horn is impressive and unique: He does not resemble Bechet, Coltrane, Lacy or anyone but himself.... He has a brilliant tone, super-fast fingers, excellent intonation and an engaging musical imagination that extends into his instruments' high register naturally, with no strain."
- Howard Mandel, NYC, October 2012

"a saxophonist using his exquisite tone to explore the open spaces of free jazz with a touching sensitivity" - Fran Hardcastle, LondonJazz
