Growing up in the suburbs of New York, Russ Paladino’s musically inclined family was the perfect environment to catalyze his love for the saxophone.
He has performed with tons of people from Brian Setzer to Paul Schaffer. You can hear him with his bands and even in things like commercials for Oreos. You can check him out with the Sound Image Band.
I had known Russ through Sax Station and then met him in Nashville at the Inside Outside Retreat at Wooten Woods. Was fun to hear him play there.
This is my written introduction which probably should have been included in the video itself! It’s a bit of a learning process for me. Russ has some helpful things to say, so check it out!
