Former member of the Rippingtons and creator of The Sax Pack, Jeff Kashiwa enters his third decade of solo recording with Fly Away, an emotionally impactful album whose songs alternately capture the bittersweet awareness of the passage of time and joyful optimism about the future. Kashiwa – playing alto and tenor sax, flute, alto flute, clarinet and EWI – jams with his longtime band Coastal Access and brings extra punch to the project with guests like Marc Antoine, Tom Schuman, Miles Gilderdale, Steve Reid, Ronny Gutierrez, Ramon Yslas and the late Ricky Lawson. Kashiwa reminds us that while time seems to Fly Away, musical inspiration only grows sweeter with time.
