From NYTimes.com:

Think of Colin Stetson as the Neil deGrasse Tyson of the avant-garde saxophone world: a brilliant adept in a rigorous, esoteric science, but also an adroit communicator with an uncommon knack for making the arcana of his field accessible to the layman. In a concert presented by the Ecstatic Music Festival on Saturday night at Merkin Concert Hall, Mr. Stetson wasted no time in demonstrating his enviable skill as the prime mover in two unorthodox collaborations.
