Primary Instrument: Saxophone
Saul Berson has been exploring an extensive array of stylistic ground for the past 25 years. In addition to leading his own groups, he is a member of the Hard Rubber, NOW and Dal Richards Orchestras as well as the Sephardi-Klezmer band, Tzimmes.
A native of Vancouver, Canada, Saul has recorded and toured North America, Europe and the Middle East with a variety of musicians, including Jaki Byard, Steve Grossman, George Lewis and Barry Guy. He has been described as having a perfect, burnished saxophone tone that carves new paths through territory we had thought fully mapped. (Alexander Varty, Georgia Straight)....
“Berson balances the delicacy of his tone with the full-bodied and culturally infused sound of the accordion to bring forth in music many of his influences. --CADENCE
“Berson’s eclecticism has helped to make him one of the busiest musicians around town.” --Tony Montague, THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT
Fine stuff! What a treat, what a nice disc! I love this disc; I am going to put it in my big bin for my end of the year ‘Hit List’ roundup. The music just makes me smile. Well done, may it sell millions!” --Jurgen Gothe, CBC RADIO
