Notes & Reviews:

Jeffrey Loeffert is the Assistant Professor of Saxophone and Music Theory at Oklahoma State University. Loeffert is a very active chamber musician. As a founding member of the h2 quartet, Loeffert has won numerous chamber music prizes including First Place - Gold Medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and First Place at the North American Saxophone Alliance Quartet Competition. The h2 quartet is featured on five commercially available discs and received an Aaron Copland grant for their sophomore effort, "Times & Spaces." In this solo CD Mr. Loeffert presents music by diverse group of composers, all written for solo soprano saxophone and its combination with piano, soprano saxophone trio and quartet, flute, electronic track, and loop machine, blending familiar sound of the instrument with non-traditional techniques, avant-garde jazz-like improvisations and electronic soundscapes.
