This is YOUR PLACE to get information on the incomparable Tony Exum, Jr . Check out where Tony Exum Jr is performing:

“If the ’80s crossover indulgences of Kenny G helped give smooth jazz a bad name, Tony Exum Jr.’s music serves as an overdue opportunity for redemption. A devotee of artists like Grover Washington and Dexter Gordon, the Springs’ premier saxophonist is slowly and steadily gathering attention in the outside world”

Comparisons to Grover Washington, Jr., George Howard, David Sanborn can’t be helped and show up in mentions of Exum everywhere you look online, but I’ll also add my own as well. If you like the heavier funky side of jazz, you know, not just the high soaring soft melodic sax overlays you get with a lot of straight tenor-sax type jazz, think of more funkiness ala the Yellow Jackets, or maybe up-tempo Spyro Gyra songs like Heliopolis or Jubilee but with some monster bass and drums underneath. Or if you’re old enough, maybe think Tom Scott and the L.A. Express.”
