The Boston Globe
Colin Stetson on five saxophonistsThe new album by Montreal-based saxophonist Colin Stetson, is a hulking beast. By turns churning and ethereal, the album exhibits the power of the saxophone in new and unexpected ways.
CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
Which brings it back to the paradox of the album, and even perhaps its language. While Stetson’s harmonies sound random or even aleatory when you consider a saxophone’s physics, every song is grounded in rhythm.
Like most free jazz, it’s music of the moment, a work of granular epiphanies that accrete, finally, into a magnificent whole. It’s less successful as narrative, a failure Stetson says he’ll remedy down the line with a comic book.
