Spenser Liszt

Protruding from an entirely non-musical family, saxophonist Spenser Liszt has followed his dreams of performing professionally while surmounting each stage of his musical career. As a native of Dallas, Texas, Liszt showed interest in music at an early age learning violin and piano before taking up saxophone in 1999. Liszt studied classical saxophone with Don Fabian at Southern Methodist University, while simultaneously learning the workings of jazz with trumpeter Akira Sato. In 2008, he transferred to the University of North Texas to pursue a musically competitive lifestyle.

Liszt holds a Master of Music in jazz studies at the University of North Texas under the apprenticeship of Brad Leali. Liszt has played alongside well-known artists such as John Clayton, Terrell Stafford, Frank Wess, Wayne Bergeron, Dennis DiBlasio, Brad Leali, Shelley Carrol, Roger Boykin, Miles Okazaki, Lars Jansson, Akira Sato, Stefan Karlsson, Steve Wiest, and Frank Mantooth.

Liszt bases his musical approach upon Sonny Rollins idea of pure improvisation and prodigious sight reading ability....
