Magic Numbers (Songlines Recordings) by Quinsin Nachoff

"October" is an original composition from Quinsin Nachoff's Magic Numbers hybrid SACD. Nachoff is a Toronto-based tenor and soprano saxophonist and his lyrical playing is the focus of this meeting of jazz and classical music. Nachoff combines into a single aesthetic the sax trio's tradition of freewheeling improvisation and the elegance and discipline of a classical string quartet. His complex yet tuneful compositions reference Astor Piazzolla, Maria Schneider, Berg, Stravinsky and other 20th century composers, projecting varied moods, from romantic and intense to meditative to playful. Much of the music has a rockish timefeel, artfully elaborated by Jim Black on drums and Mark Helias on bass; Montreal's Nathalie Bonin is the first violinist. Recorded in Toronto, January of 2004.
