Paul Flaherty (sax).

Recorded: 2006


Rating: 87/100 (learn more)

To witness saxophonist Paul Flaherty in the creation process (the concert hall) is to see a man enter into a kind of death match with his muse. Frankly, it's both inspiring and frightening. A large man with a shock of white hair and beard, Flaherty remains motionless on stage for a minute or so before launching into a high-intensity clinic on extended techniques. Running the scale from softly romantic to passionate squall, the ideas flash into the air and then explode out of his horn. It's as if his saxophone is alive. Maybe it is!
