Haavik masterfully adds raw and funky rock flavor into the jazz genre.
Jan 8, 2009
Alec Haavik, the lanky saxophonist known for his wildly physical shows and musical contortionism on the JZ stage, has channeled his powers of transformation in a newly released album called Ye Shanghai.
Alec is a plastic performer, plastic enough to move from one dimension to the next with full control of the situation, and his love for music and sound is so attractive you just want to be right there.
Alec is a theatrical player: he plays with all the elements that cross his path on every tune, and his body is an essential tool for mixing the colors and emotions coming from his horn, from the people listening, from the couples flirting, from the pals laughing and drinking, from the bartenders calling, from the cars passing by and from the friends playing with him on the stage
