When I bought my Jupiter
baritone sax in 1992, I had already graduated in clarinet and I had been playing the tenor sax, contralto, soprano, drums and keyboards for over a decade.
It was immediately clear to me that I had a different feeling with that instrument, it was more natural and familiar, but I could not imagine yet that it would become the voice of my most intimate, true and deep stories.
We have lived several experiences together, from the Classical Quartet of Saxophones to the border music (Stravinsky’s Ebony Concerto, Bernstein’s Prelude Fugue and Riffs or Gershwin’s Rhapsody in blue).
From Funk to Jazz, from Choro to Fusion.
Together we played in small ensemble, in big bands and in large orchestras, we recorded and accompanied artists and pieces of theatre.
My reference musicians are many and all of them have a very different style and approach to the instrument:
> Harry Carney
> John Surman
> Gerry Mulligan
> Gary Smulyan
> Paul Nedzela
The emotion, the magic, the moment of absolute, the sense of a life, the memories, the pains, the joys, the hopes, the disillusions, the love, the passion. All this crosses into the head and heart of a musician in the space of a note or in the entire flow of a concert and my baritone sax is the best way that I have to tell it.
