Ab Baars | Back
Tenor Sax, Clarinet & Shakuhachi

Ab Baars has been a significant figure on the Dutch improvised music scene for around 30 years, both as leader of his own small groups, and as a member of larger ensembles such as Misha Mengelberg's Instant Composers Pool. Having worked and studied with such major figures as Roscoe Mitchell and the influential (if under-recorded) clarinettist John Carter, Ab has evolved a distinctive personal approach that is stripped to the essence yet somehow manages to convey a joyful catchiness.
