Stabat Mater

Stabat Mater by Pergolesi for soprano, alto female voice and four saxes; a premiere. Conductor Pierre Schuitemaker worked hard to form us from a jazz band into a barock quartet and guided us during the recording. Gato painted the beautiful cover.

Critics:

Het Nederlandse Saxo Panico is zo‘n bijzonderheid. De vier blazers hebben een stevige achtergrond in saxofoon-en blazerssecties van jazz-, pop-en funkbands. Dat is te horen, want de ensembleklank van de groep is warm, vol, en waar nodig strak. Vooral in de stukken die de kwartetleden zelf aandroegen voor de cd ”Morgan &More‘, komt die sonoriteit goed naar voren. ”Recurring Dream‘ van Dirk Hooglandt laat horen hoe de componist op sopraansaxofoon fraai boven het arrangement vliegt. En ook ”Karlijn‘ van baritonsaxofonist Leon van Mil is een stuk waarin de groep haar sterke kant,die sonore klank, volop kan uitbuiten (Herman te Loo in jazzflits 3-18)

Critics:

The members of the quartet all have different background in pop and jazz and their compositions are very varied. We have a modern suite, jazzy funk, a merengue, a kwela, these four musicians have no trouble with any of them. All through this album swings and you hear their enthusiasm when they improvise. This group regularly reminds you of Your Neighbourhood Saxophone Quartet from Boston but Saxo Panico distinguishes itself from their American colleagues with a more romantic sound and a preference for unison passages. (Edo Dijksterhuis; NRC Handelsblad 10-1-2000)
Smove...., wich posits a wonderfully polyrythmic framework for a catchy alto sax improvisation that is at once spontaneously free and utterly logical aptly illustrates Saxo Panico’s virtues - a kind of music-making that is both refreshingly free and totally disciplined. The diverse styles embraced by this group are subsumed into an overall sound that is polyrythmically and contrapuntally intricate, harmonically telling, infectious, and inimitable.... The level of Saxo Panico’s ensemble give-and-take and rythmic acuity is found only in the best string quartets. Its wholly relaxed and depoliticed multiculturalism and cross-genre thinking adds up to a most enjoyable way to spend 45 minutes,....
