“One of our greatest living saxophone players.” - Bon Iver
Saxophonist Colin Stetson is a master of circular breathing. The manner in which he plays his tenor sax reminds one of (free jazz) grandmasters like Evan Parker, Peter Brötzmann and Anthony Braxton. His CV is outright impressive: he has already played with or is to be heard on the albums of: Feist, Bon Iver, Tom Waits, TV On The Radio, David Byrne, Lcd Soundsystem and The National. Stetson is/was also a part of the live bands of Arcade Fire and Bon Iver.
