Sarah Manning


Alto saxophonist and composer Sarah Manning is a harmonious creature. She is the lone red fox atop a pile of shale on the outskirts of the urban landscape, her singular musical voice illustrating the contradiction of an artist drawn to the woods even as she feels the gaze of a thousand bright city lamps.

Ce lo dice con chiarezza questo suo ultimo lavoro, inciso all'inizio del 2013 alla testa del proprio quintetto, entro cui un ruolo quasi altrettanto rilevante della leader gioca il violista Etvind Kang, specificatamente per l'impasto (per certi versi ...
