Saxophonist, Mike Pedicin & his Quintet

with Justin Faulkner

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

“I don’t think I’ve ever been able to proudly listen to oneof my own CDs until this ballads album,” the saxophonist says.

Ballads…searching for peace was inspired in part byPedicin’s main musical hero, the late, great John Coltrane, although it doesnot contain any of the tunes Coltrane recorded on his classic 1962 Impulse!album titled Ballads. Pedicin’s disc does, however, include a lovely renditionof McCoy Tyner’s “Searching for Peace,” which the former Coltrane pianist firstrecorded for Blue Note in 1967.

Justin Faulkner

Drummer, Justin Faulkner of Philadelphia has been playing since he was barely old enough to walk. At age three, he started beating through the heads of pots, pans and anything that would make a sound. This gifted, soft spoken, articulate, musician was born to play. Justin’s training began at the Girard Academic High School Music Program. His formal education, starting at age 7, included studying classical music with Sue Jones, jazz/classical drums and percussion with Samuel Ruttenberg at the Settlement Music School, small group ensembles at the Clef Club of Jazz and Performing Arts, and instruction with the Principal Timpanist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, Don Liuzzi.
