One of the Most Compelling and Prodigious Tenor Saxophonists of Her Time Chilean native Melissa Aldana is the 2013 Winner of the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone. Competition, one of the most compelling and prodigious tenor saxophonists of her time. She follows up her 2014 Concord release Melissa Aldana & Crash Trio with the explorative and deeply swinging Back Home, with Pablo Menares on bass and the in-demand Jochen Rueckert on drums, bringing a supple and unpredictable rhythmic élan to the session. The three project an uncommonly full orchestral sound, rich in spiritual intensity, all in the absence of a harmony instrument.
