David Caceres

Something interesting happened to saxophonist David Caceres during his recent three-year stint in New York — someone suggested that he record an album featuring not his sax-playing but his singing. “There are a lot of great sax players out there,” producer Matt Pierson told him, “but there aren’t a lot of great sax players out there who can sing.” The result is the new CD David Caceres, a collection of 11 songs, including tunes by Thelonious Monk, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor and, of course, Caceres.

“Most of the songs are by popular artists, but they are the more obscure works. So unless you’re a real Maxwell fan or a Van Morrison fan, you’re not going to know these songs.” While these are covers, they aren’t straight record lifts. There is a definite Caceres feel to each of them. “To try and redo a Stevie Wonder tune is ridiculous, so of course, the format and style of these songs are completely different from the originals.” Fans who know Caceres as a serious, edgy jazz musician might be surprised by this album. His excellent jazz saxophone is paired with his soulful singing to create songs that cross over into pop and easy-listening territory. 9 p.m. Stafford Centre, 10505 Cash Road, Stafford.
