Derrick Michaels

Saxophonist | Composer | Educator

Baltimore-based tenor saxophonist whose approach is at once unapologetically lyrical and uncompromisingly dynamic.

My debut as a leader in New York City! This trio features long-time collaborator and brilliant bassist Zach Swanson, and the incredibly expressive and commanding drummer Dalius Naujo, from Lithuania.

Thanks to Danny Gouker with A.E. Randolph Presents for having us, and I recommend folks stick around for the second set - SPACE TOYS: Sivan Arbel-voice, Yuma Uesaka-saxophone, Jason Smith-electric bass, Derek Swink-drums, Pravin Thompson-guitar
