SCCD 31372 In A New York Minute / Ronnie Cuber Quartet
Baritone saxophonist Ronnie Cuber started to play professionally in the early ‘60s. He performed and recorded with Slide Hampton, Maynard Ferguson, George Benson, Lionel Hampton, Woody Herman to mention a few.
Cuber made his first appearance on SteepleChase in the Lee Konitz Nonet recording (SCCD 31018). In 1992 he recorded his first leader album for SteepleChase (Air Play, SCCD 31309) which received critical and public acclaim.
Here on his second album, Cuber plays some great bop titles and the result is “..another most impressive, highly musical and thoroughly absorbing album..” (Mark Gardner, from the linernotes)
