The ”newly” started project Sax Encounters is bringing me a lot of joy and happiness lately!
We have started to find a shape and form of the music and getting the sound together. At first when starting with the sax quartet I thought the gig opportunities would be few and that the audience would be pretty scarce. But when you start getting into improvisation, listening to Brass bands, Balkan bands, other great sax quartets such as SaxShop we’ve been getting new ideas. And after making a few concerts where the crowds have been plentiful and super excited I am not having any doubts about this anymore!
We now have a pretty big repertoire of classical music, jazz, traditional jazz (ragtime and new orleans) and party songs. This band is awesome for parties, background music, concerts and big venues all the same thanks to a very varied program and highly skilled musicians!
In the band we’ve got:
Bo Frick – Soprano Sax
Nicklas Dahlin – Alto Sax
Roger Nordling – Tenor Sax
Oskar Forsberg – Baryton Sax
And further down the line we will see some doubles and maybe even some guests!
