About Michael Pedicin:
During a prolific career that spans more than four decades, tenor saxophone master Michael Pedicin has toured with such jazz greats as Maynard Ferguson, Dave Brubeck, Stanley Clarke, and Pat Martino, as well as R&B, rock, and pop icons Stevie Wonder, the O’Jays, David Bowie, and Lou Rawls. And he even played behind Frank Sinatra a few times. He’s recorded 10 albums under his own name since 1980 and considers the tenth one, Ballads…searching for peace, just released on the Jazz Hut label, to be his crowning achievement.
