There’s nothing like listening to smooth jazz to help iron out the wrinkles of life. A saxophone or flute played by a creative, seasoned professional is pure enjoyment!
I’ve heard Bryan Savage play his sax and flute at local venues in and around Puerto Vallarta and he’s the guy I’m talking about. The man who soothes and nourishes the spirit with his great playing.
Bryan Savage has toured and recorded with hit artists like Al Stewart, Steve Martin, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Amazing Rhythm Aces, John McEuen and Starwood. He has shared billing with Natalie Cole, Bonnie Raitt, Mick Fleetwood, Gary Burton, Rick Braun, Peter White, Chuck Mangione and many others.
After years of studio work in Los Angeles playing sax and flute on over 20 major label releases for well-known artists, Bryan Savage continues to build a strong following on Smooth Jazz radio. When in the U.S., he performs with The Bryan Savage Band and also does solo shows that feature music from his 7 Smooth Jazz international releases.
Bryan earned a GOLD RECORD for his sax work on the number one-selling Steve Martin hit “King Tut.” His television appearances include Solid Gold, The Midnight Specialwith Al Stewart, and the Merv Griffin Show with Starwood.
His first nationally released solo CD, self-titled Bryan Savage, was followed by three even more successful releases. His greatest success to date has been his CD release Soul Temptation, which became another hit on Smooth Jazz Radio, charting in the top 5 nationally, while also receiving extensive international airplay.
Bryan Savage’s newest CD release is titled Amazing Grace. The title cut from the CD is a flute version of one of his favorite gospel tunes. Bryan reflected, “I’ve always done this piece in my live gigs and, because of a lot of requests, wanted to get the song onto a CD–it came out well, so I made it the title cut.” The rest of the CD consists of some of the tunes that he does in his live performances and includes the original “Let Your Spirit Live”, which he wrote as the theme song for a national TV show. Reactions to the new CD have been very positive! Bryan will have this CD, as well as his other 6 CD releases available at all his shows.
Some of you may have heard Bryan play in past seasons in Puerto Vallarta with the Banderas Bay Jazz All-Stars. They are on hiatus this year, but Bryan will continue to perform his solo shows.
He will be back at Osos Oyster Bar in La Cruz on Thanksgiving, Nov 26th, and each Thursday evening thereafter, doing his new show from 7:30pm-9:30pm. Osos is an intimate venue with great food and a beautiful view of the Marina on the North Shore
He’ll play a series of pool/garden parties at the beautiful “Los Arroyos Verdes” in Bucerias on some Sunday afternoon throughout the winter.
Bryan will also play for the RISE benefit dinner/party on Feb 6th, 2016, to be held at the Secrets Hotel in PV. More details will be announced on his website.
In addition, he will also appear at Breakers Beach Club Restaurant and Bar in Bucerias. Right on the beach, Breakers has spectacular ocean views from the deck which makes it a great place for an evening show with the colorful sunset in the background.
Check out Bryan’s new website, www.BryanSavage.com, where he’ll be posting more details about more upcoming shows as things continue to develop for the season. You can also find him on facebook.
I highly recommend that you spend an evening listening to the smooth sounds of Bryan Savage. It will be a special night to remember.
