More about Ian’s debut album, Finding:
Finding, the debut album from tenor saxophonist Ian Christensen, takes its time unfolding. Without relying on gimmicks or flashy pyrotechnics, Christensen and his esteemed colleagues carve a winding yet deliberate path through a diverse set of original music. Finding brings you bare-bones jazz, free-wheeling avant-garde romps, and classical lyricism, all featuring some of Portland’s finest improvisers in pared-down, intimate formations. Finding is a journey, a constantly-evolving sonic dialogue between friends that will surely surprise, delight, and intrigue any fan of modern improvised music.
