This is an EP of solo material i developed and recorded in 2003/4. Influenced by a variety of music that i was listening to and performing at the time including Turkish, Balkan, Carnatic and jazz music. i was also experimenting with new ways of playing saxophone such as alternative fingerings and blowing without the mouthpiece! I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as i enjoyed creating it!
This material was originally released as part of the 2004 Balkantics CD.
released June 1, 2015
