Saul Berson Saul Berson

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).

The Saul Berson Quartet’s first two CD's, From Here to Beyond, and Not Here, Not Now continue to receive critical acclaim as well as radio airplay around the country. “Intricacy” is their latest release.


“Berson has command of the tricky melodic and rhythmic terrain of standard Bop idiom” --Mike Chamberlain, PLANET JAZZ

“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

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
