Special exhibition of works by Jason Hunt

This concert of original compositions written and/or arranged for 2 tenor saxophones plus piano, bass , drums celebrates the legacy of the tenor saxophone. These new works utilize contemporary styles and approaches and are composed and arranged especially for this group by Jack Wilkins, Jeremy Brown and Per Danielsson. The compositions are based on the music of American Jazz saxophonists John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Hank Mobley and Coleman Hawkins, along with Swedish saxophonists Arne Domnerus and Lars Guilin, all masters of the saxophone whose innovations as improvisers and saxophonists provided important contributions to Jazz music.

Saxophone Legacy is a new ensemble formed in 2019. It is a collaborative project, with compositional contributions coming from all 3 founding members, saxophonists Jack Wilkins, Jeremy Brown and pianist Per Danielsson. The ensemble and concept was developed during Professor Wilkins 2017 Fulbright appointment to the University of Calgary as Senior Researcher in the College of Creative and Performing Arts. The group has performed in Canada at the University of Calgary and at the 2019 CMS International Conference in Belgium. In October they recorded a CD, with an expected 2020 release date.  Concert tours of Canada and the US will take place in March 2020.
