|JAZZPAR Artists - Steen Vig|
Steen Vig (DK), 1944-1994, and his Bluesicians - Ole "Fessor" Lindgreen (tb, arr), Gene "Mighty Flea" Conners (tb, voc), Steen Vig (ts, ss), Cornell Dupree (g), Søren Kristiansen (p), Hugo Rasmussen (b), Thorkild Møller (d) - performed at the JAZZPAR Event 1993.
Steen Vig was one of Europe's most adventurous and
wild players - deep-seated in the older part of the jazz tradition, but
hard to categorize as he dug both trad, swing, R&B, soul, rock, and
fusion as well as the Scandinavian sound (Garbarek a.o.). In today's jazz
world you can hardly find another soprano saxophone player carrying on
the Sidney Bechet tradition with the power and conviction of Steen Vig.
But using vintage Coleman Hawkins as a starting point he really considered
the tenor sax his main instrument.
