World Saxophone Quartet

featuring David Murray Arthur Blythe, Hamiet Bluiett, Olivier Lake
The sound of four sax players who combine humour with solemnity, spontaneity with philosophy, can only be that of the World Saxophone Quartet. Since their last performance at the Festival in 1986, David Murray and company have been joined by the discovery of the 1990 Festival, the alto sax player Arthur Blythe. Blythe was here in 1981 and even then had impressed critics and Festival-goers alike. With the WSQ, expect the unexpected grandeur of Duke Ellington fused with the free movement, an iconoclastie mixture that does much ta exploin the world-wide popularity of these four musiciens. The World Saxophone Quartet has become the yardstick by which are measured all sax ensembles. The classic approach has been revolutionized and the barriers of tradition of interpretation broken: this is more then just virtuosity, it's the experience of a new sound!
