Steve Norton

Boston-based saxophonist Steve Norton has been performing and recording for over 30 years, with a bunch of folks to whom he is deeply and forever in debt. His recent work has taken a turn toward more sound-based concerns and investigations into performance gestalt. His focus is on improvisation, which is filtered through a strongly compositional sensibility. Current projects include Duck That, Grizzler, Symptomatic, Kilter, Metal & Glass Ensemble, Spam and solo performance as well as ad hoc groupings.

Norton was a member of Debris, the Great Circle Saxophone Quartet and Either/Orchestra and has also performed and/or recorded with Gino Robair, Tom Plsek, Joe Morris, Laurence Cook, Herb Robertson, Steve Adams, Dave Gross, Bhob Rainey, Vic Rawlings, Matt Samolis, Gregory Damien Grinnell, Greg Kelley, Ken Vandermark, Andrea Parkins and Tim Berne. He has recorded for New World Records, Rastascan, Music & Arts, About Time, Tautology and Accurate Records.
