Last year’s Steampunk Serenade was a blast. The sax/bass/drums cooperative rolled through an array of landscapes (I liked the “Icelandic Volcano Hymn”) with memorable eloquence. The rhythm section of drummer Allison Miller (always a marvel) and Rene Hart have a new horn player for this Gowanus hit, and in several ways, I can’t wait to see where tenor and soprano expert Jeff Lederer drives this squad. His agility has been a joy to witness around town for years now, and he was made for the pliability of trio work.
