Steve Treseler

Jazz Review calls Seattle-based saxophonist and composer Steve Treseler “a bona fide big player in the arena of straight-ahead jazz who provides just enough other ingredients to keep it all fascinating and fresh.” Treseler’s music draws from the traditions of classic and contemporary jazz, impressionism, minimalism, and indie rock.

In addition to leading his own band, Treseler is a regular member of the Jim Knapp Orchestra, Wayne Horvitz’s Washington Composers Orchestra (WACO), and the Tom Varner Nonet. He has performed with jazz greats Kenny Wheeler, Bill Frisell, Bob Brookmeyer, Dave Douglas, George Russell, George Garzone, Ingrid Jensen, John Medeski, Pete Christlieb, Darcy James Argue, Terri Lyne Carrington, Donny McCaslin, and Kobie Watkins.
