The CD also features recordings from new releases by top jazz figures David Sanborn, Al Jarreau, Béla Fleck, Marcus Miller, the Bad Plus and Bob Mintzer.
"Lanka is an excellent saxophonist and gifted composer with a bright future," said Greg Yasinitsky, director of the WSU School of Music. "This is the 10th year in a row that WSU students have been featured in Jazziz and it is gratifying to see our School of Music honored in this way."
Lanka is an MA candidate and teaching assistant in the School of Music. He studies saxophone with Dave Hagelganz and composition with Yasinitsky and performs in the WSU Jazz Big Band under Yasinitsky's direction. The recording was made last spring in the WSU Recording Studio with Dave Bjur, engineer.
