Saxophonist and composer Brice Winston is a native of Tucson, AZ, but cut his teeth learning jazz in the city where the music began, New Orleans. For more than 16 years he lived in New Orleans performing with numerous world-class musicians including such notables as Brian Blade, Ellis Marsalis and Nicholas Payton. After touring with Nicholas Payton’s band for a year, his acquaintance with band leader and composer Terence Blanchard led to a close musical relationship that continues to this day. Brice has been touring with Blanchard for over ten years, affording him the opportunity to perform and record with some of the greatest musicians in the world including Herbie Hancock and Dave Holland, as well as record for movies scored by Blanchard for film director Spike Lee. March 2, 2010 marks the release date of his inaugural CD, Introducing Brice Winston, recorded in New York with former Blanchard band mates Aaron Parks, Derrick Hodge and Kendrick Scott. Brice currently finds himself back in his hometown of Tucson, AZ running the Tucson Community Music School (TCSM) and continues to record and perform in jazz clubs and music festivals all over the world.
