Remi Álvarez - tenor saxophone

Dedicated to Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche and Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche. May this music be of benefit to all beings.

"A recording of singular importance given that it is –as incredible as it sounds– the first solo recording in the long career of a cornerstone musician for free jazz and free improvisation in Mexico." (María Eugenia Sevilla, El Financiero)

"Three compositions and seven improvisations on tenor sax where the master confirms –as if he really needed to– his prestige as an instrumentalist and as one of Mexico's avant-garde music pillars." (Antonio Malacara, La Jornada)

"(...) an engaging listen. (...) The whole album is like a suave single malt – smooth in the right places but with a kick to keep things interesting." (Paul Margree, We Need No Swords)
