Touring and recording with superstar Beyoncé, and also as the assistant director of Esperanza Spalding's Radio Music Society, has put saxophonist Tia Fuller at the center of the pop music universe, reaching millions of listeners with her concise, beautifully crafted solos. On her own time, the 37-year-old is one the most important new instrumentalists in jazz, as a savvy bandleader, composer, and arranger who follows in the scorching footsteps of masters like Cannonball Adderley, Jackie McLean, and Kenny Garrett. She’s racked up an imposing range of credits, including Jon Faddis, Jimmy Heath, Gerald Wilson, and Nancy Wilson. Fuller is also a devoted educator, lecturing and presenting master classes at music institutions around the world. Her latest album is Angelic Warrior (Mack Avenue), which also features drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, bassist John Patitucci, and vocalist Dianne Reeves.
