Saxophonist Tim Willcox's debut album for Ninjazz Records features 9 unique and beautiful compositions performed by some of the Pacific NW's most acclaimed musicians. Superjazzers, Vol. 1 is the culmination of several years worth of writing and rehearsing with the idea of cultivating a true "group sound". Influences vary from Keith Jarrett's 70's quartet albums to Elliott Smith, Ravel, and John Coltrane.
Recorded August 2010. Engineered, mixed, and mastered by Randy Rollofson. Produced by Tim Willcox, David Goldblatt, Bill Athens, and Charlie Doggett. Cover art and design: Randy Emberlin and Donald Wallace.
“His playing here is an organic extension of the songs. He doesn’t fall into the trap of trying to play all the things he’s practiced. You don’t feel him trying to impress you. Instead, his saxophone is a thread in the musical fabric.”
