Saxophone & Vocals

Mindi Abair has been electrifying audiences with her dynamic live performances and sax prowess since her debut album in 1999. No one since Junior Walker has brought saxophone and vocals in one package to the forefront of modern music. Mindi got laid music in the cradle by her grandmother and her father. She has already taken up the piano at the age of 5. In the fourth grade she picked up the saxophone. Later, she attended Berklee College of Music, where she graduated with a degree in woodwind performance. In a career that spans nine solo albums, Mindi has made her mark on a broad stretch of the musical landscape that includes jazz, pop, R&B, funk, rock, soul and blues. She has toured and/or recorded with e. g. Aerosmith, Trombone Shorty, Booker T. Jones, Keb’ Mo’, Lee Ritenour, Richard Elliott, Dave Koz, Peter White, Gerald Albright, and Lalah Hathaway. Her latest CD was released in 2022. It’s a very personal album. Mindi says: “It represents a coming back to myself as a solo artist and feeling the strong sense of knowing who I am and what I stand for.”
