Wednesday Night Live Saxophone Pro Jam - Featuring Tom Politzer Lead Tenor Sax with Tower of Power @ Historic Empress Theatre |
Also Featuring Special Guests: Charles McNeal, Nancy Wright, and Kevin Frazier.
Tom Politzer is a world renowned saxophone player, long time member of the legendary soul orchestra Tower Of Power, and a seasoned recording artist.
Tom E. Politzer is TOP's lead tenor sax player. Tommy fills that role totally, not only as an outstanding soloist, but also as a part of the five piece Tower of Power horn section.
Born in Detroit and raised in Palo Alto, California, Tom contributes to the band's complex sound with his first tenor sax, alto sax, flute, and clarinet. Tom's musical background and his switch from playing the clarinet to the baritone sax chair (inspired, in part, by Tower of Power's "Squib Cakes"), set the stage for him to become the professional musician he is today. "Being in the band has definitely made me a better musician. It's just something that happens when you're around great musicians. It's like a minor league ball player making it to the majors. Your game just gets better. Plus, I get a lot of creative energy from our fans. Their enthusiasm really feeds me," he says.
