about

"This is for both the multiple sax lover and ones who might never want to touch a solo with sax on it. Now I knew Martin was a great sax player and music label hero for us new music seekers, but I didn't realize what a fine composer and creator with all the other various instruments he was. I can't compare it to any single other artist/band, but parts of it made me think of the fabulous avant-garde tricksters such as Picchio dal Pozzo and Henry Cow. However, I don't feel it should be bogged down with comparisons, as it is certainly his own masterpiece. It does have the free jazz spirit, yet keeps coherent, and is fully entrancing. It is beyond what anyone would expect, and that is saying a stuffed mouth full. I was glued to my chair from start to finish, and then again on another day's repeat listen. A GIANT RECOMMENDATION!" - Lee Henderson BIG BEAUTIFUL NOISE

This is the first time I've made an album on which I'm the only performer. I've been playing AACM style saxophone for more than 40 years now, and this collection - a mixture of solo, small and larger ensembles, sometimes with percussion or minimal electronics - presents everything I've learned about the instrument as a player and composer in that time.
