Michael Karn Quintet

In Focus

On his leader debut, after a decade of dues paying, the 33-year-old tenor saxophonist Michael Karn shows he's more than ready for prime time, framing his huge sound, clever lines, and forceful swing with an A-list ensemble, including Peter Bernstein on guitar, pianist David Hazeltine, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson.
