The Dale Fielder Quartet takes the stage at The Mixx in Pasadena Saturday night.
Fielder plays alto, tenor and baritone sax and is well known on the jazz scene for his original compositions, along with a repertoire of rare, obscure jazz classics.
The Pennsylvania native has released 13 CDs on various labels since his first one, “Free Flow” in 1993.
Fielder learned to play in public schools and studied arranging and composition with noted Pittsburgh saxophonist Phillip Celli. He later studied jazz at the University of Pittsburgh.
Fielder eventually settled in LA and studied with sax legend Charles McPherson, after which he became a bandleader, establishing the Dale Fielder Quartet in 1988.
Music starts at 6 p.m. Saturday at The Mixx, 443 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena. No cover. Call (626) 500-0021 or visit themixxclub.com.
