Dynamic saxophonist and jazz vocalist Max Wagner will debut his latest album, Gratitude, with his quartet at Dazzle Jazz on June 24.

“This album has ben a true labor of love, and I think you’re going to love the results!,” writes Wagner on his website. “We’ll be playing tunes from the album [at Dazzle] and some great new music as well; up-beat originals, up-dated classics, ballads and more.”

Tune in June 23 at 11:30 AM to hear Morning Beat host Victor Cooper interview Wagner live in the studio about his CD release party at Dazzle.

Described by The Denver Post as “a powerful and innovative soloist” and by Westword as “Denver’s candidate for the ‘Alto Madness’ award”, Wagner has also been called “Hot sax at it’s finest!” by The Kansas City Star as

Renowned for his engaging musical experience, Wagner preforms classic straight ahead jazz, original compositions, soulful bebop, Latin jazz, and romantic ballads.

Wagner has worked with many of the great jazz artists of our time, including Lew Tabackin, Bud Shank, Angela Hagenbach, Don Braden, Red Holloway, Nick Brignola, Dakota Staton, Javon Jackson, Pete Christlieb, Lou Donaldson, and Frank Tiberi.
