Colin Stetson performs 'Judges'
Michigan native Colin Stetson is like the Roger Federer of avant-garde instrumental music. While the Swiss tennis player has changed the way we think of tennis, Stetson is redefining the possibilities of woodwind and brass instruments" (Alex Green)
Colin Stetson was born and raised in Ann Arbor, MI and earned a degree in music from his hometown school, the University of Michigan, in 1997. Six years in San Francisco followed, then another four in Brooklyn, NY. Over this time, he developed his unique solo voice on saxophones and clarinets, culminating in the release of the album New History Warfare Vol. 1″ on Agoo Records in 2008.
Stetson now resides in Montreal, QC, and performs regularly on assorted saxophones, clarinets, cornet, french horn and flute.
His latest solo record New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges” was released Feb. 22, 2011 on Constellation.
