SABERTOOTH / DR. MIDNIGHT LIVE AT GREEN MILL -CD *Delmark 579
Saxophonists Cameron Pfiffner and Pat Mallinger are exciting jazz players who evoke the spirit of historic saxophone tandems like Johnny Griffin & Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis or Sonny Stitt & Gene Ammons. They formed Sabertooth in 1990 and have been doing the Green Mill Saturday night After Hours Jazz Party for fifteen years. Pete Benson’s been Sabertooth’s organist for five years and the group is anchored by drummer Ted Sirota. Blues to bop, Caribbean to cool, strange (Dr. Midnight) to odd (couple) – put this CD on and join the party!
