    Capital District Jazz Ltd., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, is proud to introduce our new concert series, Spring Jazz at the Art Center, with Cliff Brucker bringing his swinging Full Circle Sextet, featuring the incomparable saxophonist Leo Russo, to the Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy on April 24! Brucker, a stalwart of the Capital Region’s jazz scene, has assembled some of the area’s finest players to celebrate the release of his new CD, Cliff Brucker's Full Circle, Vol. 2.

    This stellar lineup includes: Cliff Brucker-drums, Leo Russo-alto & tenor saxophones, Dylan Canterbury-trumpet & flugelhorn, Wayne Hawkins-piano, Mike Novakowski-guitar, and Otto Gardner-bass.

    The concert serves as a showcase for one of the area’s musical treasures, Leo Russo, now in his eighties. One of the greatest musicians to ever come out of the Capital District, Brucker notes, “Leo has a sound and a sense of musicality that he alone possesses, you know it’s Leo from the very first note!”
