Saxophone Conversations is a project led by tenor saxophonist Fredrik Carlquist. The band has worked together since 2011 and the music draws influences from the great Cool- and West Coast Jazz era. The arrangements are built around the interplay between Carlquist and fellow saxophonist Joan Chamorro, both among the leading sax voices on Barcelona’s jazz scene today. The repertoire consists of standards and originals by Carlquist in arrangements where worked out ideas seamlessly melts together with improvisations. The focus lays on melody and swing and together the band creates a dynamic and accessible music where the details matter. The group performs both in trio without drums and in quartet with drums.
Fredrik Carlquist – tenor sax, Joan Chamorro – baritone sax & Tom Warburton – bass Caspar St.Charles – drums.
