The Tiptons Saxophone Quartet

With a repertoire that ranges from New Orleans second-line to Jazz, Afro-Cuban to Balkan, klezmer and beyond, the Tiptons create some of the wildest sounds ever to come out of a sax quartet. An all-women sax quartet (who sing!) from Seattle, New York and points Midwest, with 10 CDs under their belt, touring and playing festivals in Europe and the US for more than 15 years. Each member is a solo artist in her own right. Their dynamic, playful concerts feature high-energy interaction between artists, and a repertoire that touches on soulful music from around the world.
