LATEST RECORDING IS MEDITATIONS ON FREEDOM
The music-making of the Brooklyn- based Preminger has been called â€œimpressive, challenging and beautifulâ€? by the Boston Globe, while the Hartford Courant said: â€œPlaying with the grace and expressiveness of a jazz veteran, the young man with a horn mixes cool restraint with emotional depth and old-fashioned poetry with contemporary bite.â€? Time Out New York called Preminger â€œan exceptional young player... [who] has made an impact on the scene.â€? The Boston Globe said about the saxophonist: â€œHe plays with not just chops and composure, but already a distinct voice: His approach privileges mood and reflectiveness, favoring weaving lines that can be complex but are also concise, without a trace of over-playing or bravado.â€?
Preminger has not only performed with the cream of the current crop of New York-based musicians; he has played with the likes of Billy Hart, Dave Holland, John Patitucci, Fred Hersch, Dave Douglas, Rudy Royston, Joe Lovano, Victor Lewis, John and Bucky Pizzarelli, Billy Drummond, George Cables, Roscoe Mitchell, and Dr. Eddie Henderson."
