Saxophones

Although Tony Bevan's first instrument was the soprano saxophone, which he took up in the early 1970s under the tutelage of Lol Coxhill, he has subsequently carved out a distinctive place in free improvisation circles through his tenor playing and, most particularly, his mastery of the bass sax, on which he has a remarkable agility and range.

He has collaborated with many leading free players from both sides of the Atlantic, including the veteran drummer Sunny Murray, and Chicago A-listers Jeb Bishop and Michael Zerang.
