Taking over the Tuesday Jazzidency for July, guitarist Dave Haskell steps into the limelight with his fusion drenched music with the release of his most recent album Pivot Point. Growing up in Ukiah, the Ford Brothers introduced Dave to the Chicago Blues, but mainstream jazz and rock and roll also shaped his sophisticated sound. “Dave Haskell Group’s Pivot Point is terrific and Haskell is an enormously lyrical and mood drenched player. . . a hugely seductive album.” –JazzWax
