Originally from Italy but growing up in the D.C. area, saxophonist and composer Alex De Lazzari brings his quintet for his debut performance at Germanos. Alex first picked up the saxophone at age 12, and, shortly after hearing a few John Coltrane records, was hooked. Now he is a freshman at William Paterson University in New Jersey where he studies with famed saxophonist Vincent Herring. This performance will feature both arrangements of jazz standards and original compositions from the band, highlighting Alex and his quintet’s abilities both as soloists and as a swinging ensemble.
