These new works utilize contemporary styles and approaches and are composed and arranged especially for this group by Jack Wilkins, Jeremy Brown and Per Danielsson. The compositions are based on the music of American Jazz saxophonists John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Hank Mobley and Coleman Hawkins, along with Swedish saxophonists Arne Domnerus and Lars Guilin, all masters of the saxophone whose innovations as improvisers and saxophonists provided important contributions to Jazz music. Saxophone Legacy is a new ensemble formed in 2019. It is a collaborative project, with compositional contributions coming from all 3 founding members, saxophonists Jack Wilkins, Jeremy Brown and pianist Per Danielsson. The ensemble and concept was developed during Professor Wilkins 2017 Fulbright appointment to the School of Creative and Performing Arts and his collaboration with Jeremy Brown, a professor at the University of Calgary. The group has performed in Canada at the University of Calgary and at the 2019 CMS International Conference in Belgium. In October 2019 they recorded a CD in Calgary, with a June 2022 release date. Saxophone Legacy is touring Alberta in June 2022 with concerts in Calgary, Canmore and Edmonton.
