A promising young tenor saxophonist, Teodross Avery
made his recording debut as a leader on GRP when he was a few days short of turning 21. He had studied classical guitar when he was ten, switched to alto at 13, and a few years later took up the tenor. Avery
studied with Joe Henderson
, attended Berklee, and soon was leading his own group. In 1993, he appeared on a Carl Allen
record and then utilized his quartet on his GRP debut.
