ABOUT MIKE CAUDILL
Mike Caudill is a Boston-based saxophonist and composer who has performed with iconic jazz figures like Sean Jones, Randy Brecker, Dick Oatts, Dave Liebman, Sheila Jordan, and Karrin Allyson, as well as groups like the acclaimed alternative rock group, “10,000 Maniacs.” Influenced deeply by the jazz tradition, Mike also cites rock, folk, and classical genres among his inspirations, and his arrangements reflect these varied interests.

He currently writes for and performs with groups across New England, including his own quartet, which released the album “Pictures Around Us” last year to accompany a tour of the Mid-Atlantic and Nashville, TN area. His compositions have received recognition from several groups including ASCAP’s Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer program and the 360 Degree Jazz Initiative at UNC Chapel Hill. Mike teaches saxophone, woodwinds, and music theory privately, as well as at the Cushing Academy college preparatory high school in Ashburnham, MA.
