Busker Days: Rasul, "Autumn Leaves"

Listen here to the saxophone of Rasul Grayson. He's 21 years old and hails from San Francisco. He also plays guitar in a local jazz trio, JNG. It was the first time I'd seen him when I made this recording of him playing alto saxophone at the Montgomery Station northwest entrance. Here's his take on the jazz standard Autumn Leaves. Enjoy!

  1. The saxophone, to me, is the quintessential Busker instrument. Of all the street recordings you've done, this may catch the ambience of a subway station in it's purest form. Cheers to you and the wonderful performance from Mr. Grayson. Seems criminal that he wouldn't play sax in the jazz band. Makes me wonder, just how good he must be at guitar?
