To be honest I haven't heard David Binney play yet, but I like to hear people I haven't heard. Among those, he is highly recommended by trusted saxophone players and jazz musicians. I feel like I have been missing out and want to change that.
I fell in love with this music after hearing it in Emir Kusturica's films. I can't help but dance and jump around with arms flailing with a big smile on my face when Goran Bregovic and his band get going.
Wayne Shorter is my favorite sax player EVER. But it's his beautifully constructed compositions that get more and more creative as time passes and evoke raw energy from his band. I saw him a few years ago and it was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. Hands down.
