Jan Garbarek

Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek's icy tone and liberal use of space and long tones has long been perfect for the ECM sound and, as a result, he is on many recordings for that label, both as a leader and as a sideman. He had won a competition for amateur jazz players back in 1962, leading to his first gigs. Garbarek worked steadily in Norway throughout the remainder of the '60s, usually as a leader but also for four years with George Russell (who was in Scandinavia for a long stretch). Garbarek began recording for ECM in the early '70s and, although he had opportunities to play with Chick Corea and Don Cherry, his association with Keith Jarrett's European quartet in the mid-'70s made him famous, resulting in the classic recordings My Song and Belonging. In the '80s, Garbarek's groups included bassist Eberhard Weber and at various times, guitarists Bill Frisell and David Torn. Garbarek, whose sound has remained virtually unchanged since the '70s, collaborated with the Hilliard Ensemble in 1993 (a vocal quartet singing Renaissance music) and the result was a surprisingly popular recording. Visible World followed in 1995, and four years later he resurfaced with Rites. In April of 1999, Garbarek and the Hilliard Ensemble returned with Mnemosyne. He issued In Praise of Dreams in 2004, and finally released his first live album as a leader, Dresden, in 2009. In 2012, ECM released the live archival recording Magico: Carta de Amor, by the Magico trio that also included guitarist Egberto Gismonti and bassist Charlie Haden. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

The closest someone has come to where Coltrane was.

No mention of Officium in the bio above - but it is tremendous music. The high, pure tones of this man and his instrument cannot help but inspire.
Absolute control of the instrument. No other sax player has ever reached this level of control. Many came close, but they stopped short. Some at 98%, few at 99%; there is only one 100%, and his name is Jan.

I don't know what it is about his music, but it just makes me feel incredibly at peace.
Jan Garbarek is always pushing the boundries and creating beautiful music he is one of the best musicians to come out in the last 40 years. Its okay to listen to the gray voice

my favorite sax player from europe forever!
