“Love of Life” is a creative project by three of Europe’s top musical improvisers based on the writings of Jack London. Cellist Vincent Courtois, revered for virtuosity at the edge of classical composition, has created an acoustic trio with two tenor saxophonists, exploring tonal mid-range in works inspired by individual titles of Jack London writing such as, “Martin Eden, Sea Wolf, Build a Fire, and Goliath.” The unprecedented instrumentation of this trio works “far from the constraints of calibrated formats,” between classical structure and free improvisation, bringing obvious virtuosity to creative interpretations of literary genius. Joining Courtois are tenor saxophonists, Daniel Erdmann, and Robin Fincker, who also doubles on clarinet.
