  • The World Saxophone Quartet is joined by a West African drumming trio and bassist Melvin Gibbs for a set of original compositions that the Boston Globe called “terrific” and placed among the year’s best albums.

  • On Rhythm and Blues, the World Saxophone Quartet reimagines such R&B classics as “Let’s Get It On” and “Try a Little Tenderness” through its own unique lens. “Few groups of any kind,” said the New York Times, “are so luxuriant and precise.”

  • For its label debut, the World Saxophone Quartet explores the vast Ellington catalog, injecting its avant-garde sensibilities into classics like “Take the A Train,” “In a Sentimental Mood,” and “Come Sunday.” The New York Times called the album “a remarkable tribute—virtually a collaboration between generations, wry and piquant and full of affection.”
