7:20-40 PM PT - Steve Torok (http://www.stevetorok.com/ ), San Diego saxophonist, educator, composer, has a new disc out, "Eye To Eye", where "Jazz meets funk meets Star Wars meets elephants, featuring creative high energy arrangements and virtuosic improvisations."
Steve is a professor at MiraCosta College in Oceanside, CA where he chairs the department, teaches saxophone, improvisation, music theory, and history, and directs both MOJO (MiraCosta Oceanside Jazz Orchestra) and the Jazz Collective. If that doesn't peak your interest, then maybe just hearing this music will. We'll both listen and chat in Hour 2 of the show! More info on the disc: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/stevetorok
