"A gifted alto saxophonist and composer with a gorgeous tone," (JazzTimes)...

Udden's "stylish" playing "suggests a contemporary minded Lee Konitz" in Hush Point (THE NEW YORKER), exhibits folky lyricism in his "Jazz for Wilco Fans" branded Plainville (VILLAGE VOICE), and hits "abstract, advanced" extroversion in the Grammy nominated Either/Orchestra (ALL ABOUT JAZZ NY).  Yet throughout his discography, "his sheer musical presence imposes a kind of unity on what emerges." (IRISH TIMES)

He has performed with Bob Brookmeyer, Steve Lacy, Lee Konitz, Matt Wilson, Ben Monder, John McNeil, Mulatu Astatke and many others around the US, Europe, Africa and Asia.  He records for Sunnyside Records and is a P. Mauriat artist/clinician.
