The Quartet's approach is layered and smooth.
C. Michael Bailey

Through commissioned works ranging from Chris Stover's arrangement of Joni Mitchell's "Blue," to David Glenn's more traditional title track, and works by Bix Beiderbecke, Thelonius Monk and members of the group, the Free Range Saxophone Quartet present an eclectic mix of music performed in a traditional chamber music setting, offering a unique vision of a familiar medium. With Saul Cline, a highly regarded freelance saxophonist in the Northwest, and Vanessa Sielert, Todd DelGiudice and Gregory Yasinitsky, who teach saxophone at the University of Idaho, Eastern Washington University and Washington State University respectively.
