Combining jazz, folk and classical music, expect anything from Michael Nyman and Oliver Nelson to Ryuichi Sakamoto and Paquito D'Rivera (with a few Gaelic psalms, montunos and whirling reels along the way).
The Scottish Saxophone Ensemble was formed in 2000 and features some of the best of Scotland’s saxophone talent from Salsa Celtica, Workers Union, Transgressive North, Scottish National Jazz Orchestra and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
They have performed in Bangkok, Strasbourg, around Scotland (Glasgow/Perth Concert Halls, Isles of Coll and Mull, Dundee V&A), and also as part of the Made in Scotland Music Showcase (Edinburgh Festival Fringe).
The ensemble were hosts of the 16th World Saxophone Congress and their CD, "Mrs Malcolm", is available on iTunes.
"A stirring heterophony!" - The Scotsman
"Sensitively played and the resulting sound was nothing short of luxurious...impressive and diverse"
- Broadway Baby (****)
"This must rate as one of the best quartet recordings of
recent years. Virtuosic playing with a strong jazz influence, very strongly recommended"
- Clarinet and Saxophone Society of Great Britain
