The Sprawling Musical Biography of Saxophonist Caroline Davis 

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

Saxophonist and composer Caroline Davis likes to think big. All of her recent recordings have been built around larger themes: exploring grief and loss following the death of her father; the anterior digit of a bird’s wing and its relationship to flight; Ingmar Bergman’s Persona (1966); and the spirit of Von Freeman’s legendary Chicago jam sessions. Rather than release recordings that argue for some point about harmony, rhythm or process, it is as if she’s creating a finely nuanced musical biography, one clear, coherent chapter at a time.
