Contemporary Jazz, Avant-Garde Jazz | Label: Nonesuch Records

Probably the first of several saxophone-only ensembles who proliferated in jazz after 1975, the WSQ is unquestionably the most commercially (and, arguably, the most creatively) successful. Of course, commercial success is a relative thing in jazz, especially when one is speaking of an avant-garde group. But unlike most free jazz artists, the WSQ managed to attract an audience of significant size; large enough to have garnered a major-label record deal in the '80s, an almost unheard-of occurrence in that retro-jazz decade. Metamorphosis is the tenth album by the World Saxophone Quartet and fourth album on the Elektra/Nonesuch label with added African drummers and electric bassist Melvin Gibbs (after the departure of Julius Hemphill).

Label: Ars Produktion | Release Year: 2017

At the time of frequent requests for greater philological rigor in musical productions, the Milano Saxophone Quartet offers a unique recording with arrangements of works by Gabrieli, Scarlatti / Sciarrino, Verdi and Puccini. Numerous studies on manuscripts have been carried out, in order to follow meticulously the indications of original tempo. The musicians play on period instruments in order to create an experience as close as possible to the reality of the time and to follow at best the original conception of the composers; Other partitions are also interpreted here in versions not originally intended for these instruments. Consequently, the arrangements chosen for this recording will give listeners great pleasure: not only do they show the influence of the arranger, but also that of the musician-composer and his own cultural, musical and instrumental context, time.

The seven compositions on this recording where composed with an idealized Juke Box in mind, where any kind of music might show up from any culture or time and be combined for the next "Play". My music listening has been informed by the spirit and work of Alan Lomax, from blues to raga, ragtime to avant-garde, pygmy chants to Korean court music, following styles and esthetics as they rubbed up against each other in the mingling of culture that was made available by intrepid searchers of music. The "sides" aren't a direct borrowing but a weaving of the common threads that occur in all musics.

Label: Justin Time | Rel: 2000

After nearly two dozen recordings and in celebration of their 25th anniversary, the World Saxophone Quartet has proven that they are still on the cutting edge of avant-garde jazz in the new century. 25th Anniversary: The Next Chapter features the four brilliant saxophonists: Oliver Lake on alto saxophone; John Purcell on saxello, alto-flute, and Tibetan bells; David Murray on tenor saxophonist and bass clarinet; and Hamiet Bluiett on baritone saxophone and contra-alto clarinet doing what they do best, creating daring concepts as a collective. This CD offers their first-ever experiment with overdubbing on Purcell's title cut, "The New Chapter." David Murray's funky "Suki Suki Now" finds him extending his range on the tenor saxophone with intensity and abandon. This is the WSQ's sixth recording for the Justin Time label and exceeds the listening possibilities and interpretations of their Takin' It to the Next Level CD because of their extensive range of approaches, new sonorities, hi-tech themes, and the overdubbing experimentation.

One of the better albums in Rova's confusingly expansive discography, From the Bureau of Both features some of the quartet's most immediately rewarding moments, as well as a few on the opposite end of the spectrum. Rova can be surprisingly accessible when the group's free explorations are tethered to strong frameworks, and that's the case with much of this album. "Swang" became something of a signature piece for the group, featuring a jaunty, rhythmic opening riff that builds into a more complex main passage with several different parts, followed by some spirited group interaction. "Swapmeet! Swapmeet!!" and "Streak" follow a similar pattern: driving rhythms and catchy themes in the lower register, plus interlocking melodies over the top, all of which gives the group members solid bases from which to take flight in their solos.
