[SAXPERIMENTAL] To see a Colin Stetson show is to witness a feat of physical strength. The Montreal-based experimental saxophonist can hoist his massive bass saxophone to his lips with only the aid of a harness, employing circular breathing to play without pause for minutes on end, veins bulging from his forehead and his face turning unnatural hues. After a while, you start to get afraid he’ll pass out onstage. Your concern for Stetson’s well-being, though, won’t outweigh his desire to play on. A truly singular artist with a flair for breathing life into the avant-garde, Stetson has collaborated with the likes of Tom Waits, Arcade Fire and David Byrne, and broke out as a solo musician with 2011’s New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges. On that album, spoken-word interludes from Laurie Anderson provided a through line. For this spring’s Vol. 3: To See More Light, ethereal vocals from Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon fill that role.
