The title “Cry & Roar” is a tribute to the memory of baritone saxophonist Andrew Carrico, a regular Racer Sessions participant who died tragically in September of 2012. The loss of Andrew’s life occurred not long after the shooting at Cafe Racer that previous summer; another wound for an already enormously grief-stricken community. Utterly unique and self-aware, Andrew once described his sound on the saxophone as a cross between a cry and a roar. For 5 years Table & Chairs and Racer Sessions have provided one-of-a-kind artists like Andrew a platform to freely express themselves. “Cry & Roar” is dedicated to this ever-expanding community.
