Jazz is a novel vehicle for use by saxophone quartets to explore instrument; the World Saxophone Quartet being most prominent.
Australia’s SNAP, meanwhile, has matured into a very original quartet. The rhythm, melody and harmony are all driven by various members at differing times using complex counterpoint. Sandy Evans’s Bellingen suite is inspired by the town’s geography and artistic culture.
Take the peaceful flow of The Beautiful Bellinger, the swinging laughing Urungatang or the joyous celebratory Street Party referring to the annual jazz festival.
