Nearly three decades have gone by since Evan Parker, Barry Guy, and Paul Lytton recorded Tracks in 1983. The Parker-Guy-Lytton trio is one of the most veteran line-ups in European free improvisation, and Parker himself has been identified as one the greatest representatives of free interpretation and of free jazz on the British scene.
This was the last concert of the Saxo Jazz season, with which the Museo Picasso Málaga proposed a revision of the current status of this instrument, putting the spotlight on its progress, its alliances and its contexts. Different generations of European and North American musicians enrichening the language of an instrument which has come to be a symbol in itself.
The Saxo When Adolphe Sax invented the saxophone in around 1840, he was looking for an instrument which had the powerfulness of the metal instruments and the richness of the strings. Its versatility sat well with the nascent jazz of the time, with pioneers such as Sidney Bechet or Coleman Hawkins forging their sound identity early in the twentieth century. A hundred years later, the sax gives even greater strength to its voice in the universe of improvisation, marking out new boundaries in a jazz scene which is hopping.
