The Electric Saxophone is an intriguing and exciting collection of pieces for saxophone and tape/computer. Played by Stephen Cottrell, whose involvement in the world of electro-acoustic music goes back nearly two decades (and who is also the leader of the Delta Saxophone Quartet). The disc represents an impressive cross-section of musical styles.
- Wayne Seagel’s funky Jackdaw.
- Ian Dearden’s electronic inspired Lilt.
- Javier Alvarez – On Going On.
- Jonty Harrison’s classic EQ.
- Will Gregory’s rousing Interference.
This is a unique disc of pieces (many of them unavailable elsewhere), which are not only compositionally strong, but also absorbing and exciting to listen to.
‘….energy charged and exciting, the saxophone continues to push the boundaries.’
