Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Colin Stetson (alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, bass saxophone).
  • Audio Mixer: Ben Frost .
  • Recording information: April Base, Fall Creek, WI; Le Petit Eglise, Montreal; Monkeypuzzle Studios; OBORO, Montreal; Sonovox, Montreal.
  • Improviser and composer Colin Stetson's solo work is characterized by dense sheets of saxophone/woodwinds that present a similar approach as loop-based music while being recorded in single live takes with no overdubs. This unique and challenging discipline calls on elements of jazz, modern composition, and even aspects of repetition and textural drone found in certain branches of electronic music and noise. With New History Warfare, Vol. 3, Stetson explores scorched landscapes and heavenly scenes alike with his stylized playing. He spent time collaborating with Bon Iver, and singer Justin Vernon returns the favor and contributes his signature falsetto vocals to four songs here -- these vocals are the only overdubs on the album, though detailed production by Ben Frost would lead listeners to believe otherwise. ~ Fred Thomas
Professional Reviews
Mojo (Publisher) (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[F]ar from softening the visceral impact of Stetson's lung-busting alto, tenor and bass horn explorations, Vernon's vocals actually beef them up."
