Frank R. Strozier, Jr. (born June 13, 1937) is an alto saxophonist renowned for his playing in the hard bop idiom. Strozier was born in Memphis, Tennessee, where he learned to play piano. He grew up in a middle-class family. His father, Frank, S. was a pharmacist who owned a drug store and his mother, Mildred, worked as a clerk in the same drug store. In 1954, he moved to Chicago, where he performed with Harold Mabern, George Coleman, and Booker Little (all, like Strozier, from Memphis).
The music, mostly comprised of Strozier originals, is advanced hard bop, and the music is both enjoyable and (due to Little's presence) somewhat historic.
