Tenor saxophone quartet Battle Trance's sophomore album Blade of Love will be released digitally and on CD August 26, 2016 on New Amsterdam Records, with a vinyl edition released by NNA Tapes. The follow-up to their widely acclaimed debut Palace of Wind (2014), Blade of Love is an elemental composition that aims to fulfill the tenor saxophone's expansive potential as an ensemble instrument. Working within the intimate intersection of the human body/breath and the saxophone, Blade of Love is a spiritual and enigmatic work with a deep emotional resonance.
Ruth Garbus is basically one of our favorite people and a brilliant musician.
