new solo saxophone album from MASSIMO MAGEE, “Quotidiano”

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 1:58 pm

Saxophonist Massimo Magee recorded many excellent albums for KSE over a seven or eight year period–his albums were always ones that generated a lot of positive buzz from listeners, and it has been a  joy to follow him on his artistic journey over the years, with his recordings and writings and related computer multi-media art.

Very happy to announce that he has a new solo saxophone album out now, QUOTIDIANO, available on Bandcamp. Here is the link:

massimo quotidiano

QUOTIDIANO means “daily,” and this album, consisting of one 34 minute performance, is a kind of “daily workout” for Magee, which he decided to document for our enjoyment and appreciation. It has the methodical rigor one associates with Magee’s solo saxophone performances, but also the plaintive searching and ecstatic surprise the man delivers so well. I was initially reminded of the old Roscoe Mitchell solo saxophone album on Sackville from 1974, which I listened to often back in the day. However, this QUOTIDIANO is 100% Massimo Magee, and fans of his KSE releases should grab this ASAP. It’s like he’s come to your house and is performing across the table from you….who would not want that!  Cost is whatever you want to pay. And you can also send a download of the album to a friend as a gift (as I did). We might not be releasing any more Magee albums at KSE, but he continues to do great work….treat yourself to this one.
