The unmistakably haunting sound of Jan Garbarek's saxophones remains one of the most distinctive voices in today's music. "In my best moments I hope to give meaning to every note"

Undoubtedly one of the most original jazz saxophonists to emerge since the 1970s, Jan Garbarek has taken time to hone his unique sound. His implicitly idiosyncratic style is unmistakably original, incorporating influences from the folk cultures of many countries, including his native Norway.

"As a tone alone and of itself is musically insufficient, I was again amazed what Garbarek is capable of making out of this sound. The music is intensely built around melody; the phrases as if etched in glass, are vivid, pure and immaculate to the last detail."
