12 Milagritos: Line 9

John Butcher, Gino Robair, Matthew Sperry

Recorded June 30, 1998, in Oakland. John Butcher, one of the most original saxophone voices of the day, joined here in good company by Gino Robair and Matthew Sperry. Never content with simply being an exercise in pushing the capabilities of their instruments beyond the parameters of established technique, the music here is also deeply fascinating and breathtaking too. No lavish ornamentation, but twelve statements of exuberance given momentum by a subtle delicacy.
