About The Artist:
Saxophonist Trey Sorrells credits his church upbringing for his soulful approach to Jazz. He received RJS' Joe Kennedy, Jr. Jazz Scholarship award in 2013 while a student at Virginia Commonwealth University. Sorrells has performed with Bob Mintzer and John Abercrombie and has traveled with the VCU Department of Music to South Africa via an international Jazz exchange program. He performs regularly with several bands in the area including Future Prospect which is receiving critical acclaim for its high energy blend of Jazz, Soul and R&B.

"Joe (Henderson) is one of my favorite saxophonist/composers. His music has amazingly complex harmonies and soulful melodies that work within any setup. His music also leaves room for arrangement which I think is extremely important as well." ~ Trey Sorrells
