Here's an interesting article from the Newark Star-Ledger from a few weeks ago about saxophonist, composer and educator Ralph Bowen. Here's an excerpt:
Ralph Bowen, the former Horace Silver saxophonist and associate professor of music at Rutgers University New Brunswick, is what jazz musicians appreciatively call a "monster." Particularly on tenor saxophone, but also on soprano, he boasts a virtuosic technique and a winsome sound, and he can be as inventive and compelling a soloist as you'll find.
