Two great stories in the news today about vital, New York-based saxophonists who have fought back from health issues.
David Adler has a post about the return of Mark Turner, who suffered a serious power saw accident last year.
Meanwhile, on the New York Times site, Ben Ratliff reviews a set by Andrew D'Angelo's new band – his first new project after life-threatening brain cancer, which struck him exactly a year ago.
Terrific to have both of them back.
Update: Mark Turner talks about his accident and rehabilitation on this interview with Josh Jackson of WBGO radio in Newark, N.J.
