Bertrand Denzler – tenor saxophone. Dozens of solo concerts in Switzerland, France, Lebanon, Greece, England and Italy. Tenor puts me in mind of Axel Dörner, for commonalities in approach rather than similarities in sound. As the German trumpeter does in his solo work, French saxophonist Bertrand Denzler presents ideas, then dissects them with a clinical rigour. But where Dörner’s methodology can sound dry and juiceless, Denzler’s reed investigations wring a variety of moods and registers from a finite – and surely predetermined – range of sounds.
That this one does makes this refreshing recording from free improvisational whiz and tenor saxophonist Bertrand Denzler and his partner, Norbert Pfammatter, something special. Newness by itself does not imply quality; fortunately, this partnership revels in a substantive, freewheeling, though thoughtful, approach that never lets go. Denzler has his own sound, one that is almost a blend of Steve Lacy-like chirps viewed through the lens of a Coleman Hawkins. Denzler is capable of Hawk's big tone, but he applies it strictly within a postmodern aesthetic
Tenor saxophonist Bertrand Denzler along with his Quartet are at times fiercely energetic, loud, dissonant or serve up kaleidoscopic-like interludes and conversational group interplay. The title track and opener Y? clocks in at 21 minutes and is fairly up front and in your face. Denzler’s ferocious yet brazen tenor work may be an acquired taste for some; however, his flexibility shows via excursions into temperate passages which offer up wide ranging tonalities and breadth
