Mette Rasmussen

Mette Rasmussen has turned playing saxophone into a complete physical experience, embracing her audience with sonic altitude and prolific melody lines. She is a vital exponent of a new wave of extreme instrumental improvisers. In the recent year she has been touring with Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Chris Corsano, Sofia Jernberg, and Mette Rasmussen Quintet with Torbj√∂rn Zetterberg, Johan Berthling, Raymond Strid and Paul Lytton. She has collaborated with MoE, Craig Taborn, Barry Guy, Zeena Parkins, etc. She has released new records on American Feeding Tube Records with Bhutanese guitarist Tashi Dorji and on French Dark Tree Records with French guitarist Julien Desprez.
