Bobby Selvaggio seizes every opportunity to make a poignant musical statement with Modern Times. Surrounding himself with some of today’s hottest jazz artists, including pianist Kenny Werner and sizzling trumpeter Sean Jones, Selvaggio achieves a level of musical coexistence with these powerhouse musicians that transcends simply “making music” and will certainly leave audiences awestruck. Selvaggio’s original compositions on Modern Times are tailored to his sidemen and the music is a raw vision of who Bobby Selvaggio is as a saxophonist. Playful, inventive and certainly begging for multiple spins, Modern Times holds a clear message for the jazz world as we move further into the 21st century. These are interesting times, so keep listening.
