Tiptons - Tsunami

SKU NML0532
The BTMSQ are a great sax quartet; I really never expected to see another album by them, as they now live on different coasts, but here it is!

"The Tiptons are an all-female sax quartet with percussion, based in Seattle. The group features Jessica Lurie (alto and tenor sax, voice), Amy Denio (alto sax, voice), and Sue Orfield (tenor sax), original members and the lead composers of the internationally renowned Billy Tipton Memorial Saxophone Quartet (BTMSQ), as well as Tobi Stone (baritone sax) and Elizabeth Pupo Walker (drums). All of the members share in composing and arranging - and their dynamic repertoire includes some fabulous singing as well!. BTMSQ was originally founded in 1988, and chose its name to pay tribute to big band saxophonist and pianist Billy Tipton, following the postmortem revelation that Tipton was actually a woman who lived as a man for more than 50 years. Many believe that this allowed Tipton to pursue a career in the male-dominated world of jazz. Not to be bound by convention, the Tiptons similarly do their own thing. With a repertoire that ranges from New Orleans jump groove to hip hop, punk to East European, klezmer and beyond, the Tiptons create some of the wildest sounds ever to come out of a sax quartet. Live performances are not soon forgotten in light of the high-energy interaction between members."
