Jürgen Wettig So glad you released this, Briggan! While listening to your morning concert at Nexus was truly fantastic, a closer 'hear' of the recording reveals all the "Art of the (alto) Saxophone"!!

Álvaro Domene If you are interested in the possibilities of solo exploration, spontaneous composition, and/or the saxophone, you NEED to get your hands on this. Briggan is at the top of his game and we are very fortunate to have him around and producing top shelf material like this.
