Nascido da vontade de celebrar o espírito de John Coltrane, juntamente com nova música composta pelos seus membros, o Saxophone Summit tem na sua linha da frente três dos mais elevados representantes da família dos saxofones: Joe Lovano, Dave Liebman e Greg Osby, que veio substituir Ravi Coltrane, o sucessor de Michael Brecker após a sua morte.

 

   A secção rítmica é um portento cuja ação acusa mais a experiência do que a idade dos seus membros: o contrabaixista Cecil McBee (82 anos), o baterista Billy Hart (77 anos) e o “jovem” pianista Phil Markowitz (65 anos).

   Muito mais do que uma mera “saxophone battle” ou do que um concurso de vedetas, o Saxophone Summit tornou-se num coletivo de verdadeiros mestres do jazz que claramente transcende a soma das suas partes.

Born out of a celebration of the musical spirit – and “spiritual” music – of the great John Coltrane, the Saxophone Summit’s front line is made of three of the most revered and eloquent sax players in jazz: soprano expert Dave Liebman, tenorist Joe Lovano, and altoist Greg Osby, who, succeeding Michael Brecker and Ravi Coltrane, recently joined the group.

 

   The rhythm section is a tremendously powerful and finely oiled musical engine consisting of three highly experienced and like-minded musicians, whose action never seems to betray their age: the bassist Cecil McBee (82 years old), the drummer Billy Hart (77), and the “young” pianist Phil Markowitz (65).

   Saxophone Summit is more than a cutting contest or saxophone battle. It has become a multi-faceted musical equation greater than the sum of its parts.
