Sax and Jazz

SHUKROON is one of New York’s hidden treasures, a soulful man who speaks through his horn with gentle authority. He has been a central figure at Marjorie Eliot’s intimate Parlor Entertainment, where an extended “family” gathers in her Harlem apartment every Sunday to enjoy a uniquely hospitable concert environment. Sedric’s breathy tone harks back to the romance of Johnny Hodges and Ben Webster, while his inventive melodic lines echo Sonny Rollins – someone who won’t be a stranger for long.” Thomas H.
