Saxophonist Tivon Pennicott was still in college when he joined jazz guitar master Kenny Burrell's group. Since then, he has toured with the superstar jazz bassist Esperanza Spalding. This emerging artist brings his contemporary sax sound from New York to KC this weekend to play with the Dominique Sanders Trio. Sanders' bass solos stand out as complex yet lyrical, grabbing your attention then drawing you in. Sanders leads Andrew Ouellette on keyboards and John Kizilarmut on drums, while Tivon Pennicott joins them Thursday at the Blue Room and Friday at Take Five.
