Summary:

Beat poet: Pat Posey shares the sound of the remarkable tubax
“The growling, guttural timbre and harmonic timbre and harmonic overtones are perfectly showcased … Posey displays colossal lung power and technique … fiendishly virtuosic … a dazzling, unsettling spectacle by a musician pushing the creative envelope”. ★★★★ – BBC Music Magazine

Saxophonist Pat Posey goes to extremes for his solo debut album, they/beast. Introducing the tubax – a German-invented, modified version of the contrabass saxophone – Pat plays deep, dark renditions of J.S. Bach’s Cello Suite No. 3, Melodies for Saxophone by Philip Glass, Bach-inspired Mo’ingus by Brooklyn-based composer-saxophonist Shelley Washington, and Pat’s own Hymn.
