‘Facing Death' One of the most dynamic, resourceful and highly successful contemporary saxophone ensembles around, Delta's new release 'Facing death' takes its title from the Dutch composer Louis Andriesen and is based on Jazz legend Charlie Parker. The quartet has a reputation for offering a wide variety of stimulating music, thoughtfully programmed to provide amazing contrast, and this new CD is no exception, with stimulating compositions by wonderful composers such as Graham Fitkin, Javier Alvarez, Joe Duddell and Christopher Fox. A fabulous ensemble caught at its peak!
