Notes & Reviews:

Christian Forshaw’s approach to the saxophone is from a vocal perspective, incorporating the body’s natural resonance chambers and striving to phrase and interpret the music as a singer. This process highlights just how individual the saxophone is, and how the performer - rather than the instrument - dictates the end result.
