With Lungta, windhorse in Tibetan, I explore the richness and subtlety of orchestration for wind instruments. My windhorse is an orchestra of 13 wind instruments directed by David Russell Martin. This album features alto saxophonist David Binney, myself on the tenor saxophone, Steve Amirault on piano, Fraser Hollins on bass, Martin Auguste on the drums as well as the voices of Mireille Boily and Tanya Henri.
Produced by David Binney on Mythology Records.
Marc Copland + String Quartet
With this project, the intimate side of chamber music in which the line between composition and improvisation blurs reveals itself through a series of variations on the Bell Tolls by Marc Copland, as well as on my composition La fleur et la roche. Marc Copland’s poetry on the piano is inspired by the soundscapes of the string quartet and the melodic lines of my soprano saxophone or my bass clarinet.
