Tobias Delius - tenorsaxophone, clarinet Michiel Scheen - piano Tobias Delius, always searching the adventurous, the surprise and the excitement; these are the sources from which his creative spirit springs. He succeeds to fascinate his listeners every time. His saxophone playing sounds confident and convincing. Delius’s mastery of the tenor is sprawling, but the deep, warm richness of his tone is a constant, recalling the breathy sensuality of Ben Webster, the agile gravity of Sonny Rollins, and the pinched phrasing of Archie Shepp. Whatever is played: Tobias always retains his own identity and musical personality. That makes him a unique instrumentalist with an inescapable, beautiful tone, which you can’t but love. In 2003 he won the prestigious Dutch VPRO / Boy Edgar Prize. In Michiel Scheen he has an excellent counterpart. This quirky pianist is a barrel full of ideas. He may suddenly surprise you with a short solo piece in the highest register of the piano. H
