Dayna Stephens is globally recognized as a saxophonist, composer and arranger, and was the first-place recipient of the 2019 DownBeat Critics Poll in the category of Rising Star—Tenor Saxophone. His highly anticipated 10th album, Right Now! Live at the Village Vanguard, was released in, 2020 and features Aaron Parks, Ben Street, and Greg Hutchinson. NPR’s Kevin Whitehead had this to say about the saxophonist’s unique style, “Dayna Stephens can cry and rip it up on tenor, but at heart, he’s a streamlined melodic player. His handsome down-the-middle tone is not too heavy or light, though he can lean either way. His sound is sleek, with very light vibrato. And the lines he improvises are uncluttered and well-organized. His horn sings”. The Dayna Stephens Quartet on this concert date will also feature Kevin Hayes on piano, Ben Street on bass, and Greg Hutchinson on drums.
