Famed for his performances in the New York City subway system with the free jazz quartet Test, Sabir Mateen plays a passionate yet nuanced tenor as his main instrument but is equally comfortable on alto sax, clarinet, and flute. Mateen is capable of raw, all-out explosion but frequently displays a wide dynamic range and a subtler side and sometimes leans toward melodic free-bop. A native of Philadelphia, Mateen made his first recordings on the West Coast with pianist Horace Tapscott‘s Pan African People’s Arkestra. In 1989, Mateen relocated to New York with prompting from legendary drummer Sunny Murray and spent the next few years paying his dues on the avant-garde scene. In 1995, he recorded the duo album Getting Away With Murderwith drummer Tom Bruno. Mateen’s other notable side engagements included work with the Raphe Malik Quartet, the trio Tenor Rising, Drums Expanding with Daniel Carter and David Nuss. In 1997, Mateen led his own trio on a session for Eremite, the well-received Divine Mad Love. The following year, he teamed with Sunny Murray for We Are Not at the Opera. His latest release on Nu-Bop Records, Other Places Other Spaces (2008) features Raymond King, Jane Wang, and Ravish Momin.
