The Gomez & Sadlon jazz duo performs a wide range of music that features a repertoire of popular jazz, pop, rock and even some country musical selections from the American Songbook performed in an easy jazz style. Their music is contemporary, melodic and smooth, yet artistic and they have the ability to interpret the music in a manner that everyone will recognize and enjoy. The collaboration of guitarist Thom Gomez and saxophonist and flutist Rick Sadlon result in a beautiful combination of sounds that tastefully compliment each other and have a broad audience appeal. Guitarist Thom Gomez is an experienced musician who grew up on Long Island and started performing in rock and show bands in and around the New York City area at an early age before his family moved to Connecticut. He soon became part of the Hartford music scene and continues to perform in clubs throughout the state both as a soloist and with various jazz and fusion groups. Saxophonist/flutist Rick Sadlon has performed extensively throughout the United States and for three years at Musical Theater Zurich in Zurich, Switzerland. He was a member of the Goodspeed Opera House Orchestra for 7 years and as lead alto saxophone in the S/S Norway Orchestra, he performed with acts such as Rita Moreno, Ray Charles, Jack Jones, Lionel Hampton and Vic Damone. He now regularly performs in the New Duke jazz group lead by Brian Torff.
