steve norton: musical bio
Boston-based saxophonist Steve Norton has been performing and recording for over 30 years, with a bunch of folks to whom he is deeply and forever in debt. His recent work has taken a turn toward more sound-based concerns and investigations into performance gestalt. His focus is on improvisation, which is filtered through a strongly compositional sensibility. Current projects include Duck That, Grizzler, Symptomatic, Kilter, Metal & Glass Ensemble, Spam, solo performance and duos with Vic Rawlings, Curt Newton, Matt Samolis, Noell Dorsey, Marc Bisson and Katt Hernandez.
In addition to performance, many of the the recordings below also include examples of his composition, arranging, production and graphic design work.
