Biography

The American Saxophone Quartet began as an inspiration of Albert Regni, designed to perform the palette of musical styles which exists in the unique melting pot of New York City’s musical scene. The Quartet has performed with the New York Philharmonic with Music Director Kurt Masur since 1995, both as soloists and as a section in works by Gershwin, Ellington and others. As part of the Philharmonic’s 1997 South American Tour, they presented a Buenos Aires solo recital which earned a five-star review in La Nacion, and they have been featured on a Philharmonic Young Peoples’ Concert conducted by Leonard Slatkin.

ALBERT REGNI, soprano, is Principal Saxophone with the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera, and New York City Ballet Orchestras. He has released two critically acclaimed solo saxophone recordings, Extended Saxophone (CRI) and Three Dark Paintings (Open Loop). Well known internationally for his work on the concert stage and in recording studios, he has appeared at the music festivals of Marlboro, Aspen, and Edinburgh.

DAVID DEMSEY, alto, is Coordinator of Jazz Studies at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey. Equally at home on a concert stage or a jazz bandstand, he has recorded classical and jazz performances on the Centaur and Golden Crest labels. He has written books on John Coltrane and composer Alec Wilder, liner notes for Verve Records, and is Contributing Editor for Saxophone Journal and Jazz Player magazines.

DAVID CARROLL, tenor, is Associate Principal Bassoon of the New York Philharmonic and on the faculty of The Juilliard School. He is a winner of the Geneva International Music Competition, a Fulbright scholar, and a Koussevitsky Fellow.
