Michael "Professor" Doyle
Doyle, as the lead musician playing saxophone
for the jazz group Evidence whose CD releases
include Soulville and Untitled , He grew up in that
great, big, 24-hour-a-day pickle barrel of radio
and live jazz called New York, under the care of a
classic jazz-addict dad. John Coltrane's
flip-into-the-clouds solo on Miles Davis'
"Milestones" provided the "ah-ha" moment that
married Doyle to the saxophone for good.
Currently calling Michigan his home, the
Professor has a passion for the classic fire of
groups like Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and
Miles Davis' first great quintet drove him to
create what he calls "a hard bop haven for some
of the state's best players."
Michael Doyle's goal of bringing New York-
caliber jazz to Michigan remains the same.
Doyle's idiomatic jazz flavor joined with the Who
Dat ? Blues Band rhythm section (funky melodic
bass from the Coach and Doc's in the pocket
drums) is an excellent compliment to the smooth
but occasionally raucous lead licks of Brian "BA"
Anderson on guitar. (excerpts from article by Mark F. Turner
