Michael Pedicin Uncut

Tenor saxophonist Michael Pedicin

Locally born saxophonist Michael Pedicin has lived the life of many men. We know him for his music, but when Maureen Malloy interviewed Michael prior to his Art After 5 performance on June 20th at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, we learned that his career was much more extensive. In case you missed it, below are the clips that aired.

Michael discusses influences and collaboration on his new album.

Legend Maynard Ferguson had a hand in Michael leaving medical school.

Improvisation takes on a different meaning when it comes to Michael's teachings.
How a musician utilizes a Ph.D. in Psychology.
The meaning of the album, and how it can help us live.

All of this wonderful work ties in with the amazing story that you can hear Dr. Pedicin tell in the audio link below. This is an extremely interesting story that needs to be heard in full.  In the background, you will hear "Then I Saw You," from Michael's most recent album Why Stop Now/Ubuntu And, yes, I said DOCTOR!
