Saxophonist Elan Trotman, born and raised in Barbados, where he grooved to calypsos, reggae and local music, started piano lessons at 7, picking up the saxophone five years later. He was educated at the Berklee College Of Music in Boston. His playing displays his own fresh ideas and distinctive tone. So much so that the New England Urban Music Awards named him best male jazz performer, and he’s been nominated for Boston Music Awards in the jazz category.

The multi-instrumentalist has released music with elements of gospel, jazz, R&B, funk and reggae, but slowed things down for his 5th CD “Love and Sax” (2011). A ballads project including the single “Heaven in Your Eyes” featuring Brian Simpson, that climbed all the way to #11 on the Billboard Smooth Jazz Songs Chart. The latest release “Tropicality” (2013) showcases Elan’s Caribbean heritage and features rhythms and grooves from Barbados and surrounding Caribbean Islands. Guitarist and good friend Peter White co-produced the album, along with special guest appearances by Paul Brown, Terri Lyne Carrington and Nick Colionne.

Trotman has recorded and performed with a number of world-class musicians, including Kirk Whalum, Patti Austin, Will Downing, Phil Perry, Jamie Foxx, Keiko Matsui, Gerald Albright and Dave Koz to name a few.

Sax on the River was conceived by Trisha Friend while enjoying a Tom Braxton show at Harlow’s almost five years ago. During the final number of the night, several local musicians; Kim Waters, Jeff Clayton and Garrett Perkins joined Tom onstage. Four amazing saxophonists on the stage at one time, playing together, made her heart skip a beat. And the rest is history. The saxophone is an instrument that brings smiles to faces and makes people’s hearts sing and she wanted to bring that to her river event.

As a breast cancer survivor she created the event to promote breast cancer awareness, to give back to a non-profit organization that helps women cancer patients and their families and to share her love of jazz, particularly the saxophone, with all her friends and fellow jazz lovers in the Sacramento area.

In 2013 Sax on the River is sponsored by The Ol’Loreece Foundation which is dedicated to getting and keeping men healthy through awareness, support and entertainment. In the past Sax on the River has promoted women’s cancer awareness. This year we are excited to include men in our outreach to help promote health and cancer awareness.

Elan Trotman, vocalist Hazel Miller, Cecil Ramirez and Michael Lington perform at Sax on the River.
