According to the New York Times, Brooklyn-based saxophonist Noah Preminger, “designs a different kind of sound for each note, an individual destiny and story.” Preminger, just 35 and the winner of Downbeat Magazine’s “Rising Star Best Tenor Saxophonist,” has recorded over twelve critically acclaimed albums. Multiple recordings were released in 2017-18, including Meditations on Freedom, released on Inauguration Day, 2017, as a musical protest of political developments in America. In addition, a duo album recorded in New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall with pianist, Frank Carlberg, a Quartet recording on Criss Cross Records, and a recording of the music of Otto Preminger’s films on French, vinyl-only label, Newvelle Records. In 2018, Preminger and co-leader Rob Garcia created the Dead Composers Club and released The Chopin Project.
Born in 1986, Preminger grew up in Canton, Connecticut. He released his debut album, Dry Bridge Road, just after his 21st birthday, which was named Debut of the Year in the Village Voice “Critics Poll.” Preminger’s second and third albums as a leader were released by the Palmetto Records label. The Boston Globe hails Preminger as “a master with standards and ballads, as well as an adventurous composer.” The saxophonist has performed on key stages from the United States to Europe and Australia, and has played and/or recorded with Jason Moran, Dave Holland, John Patitucci, Fred Hersch, Dave Douglas, Billy Hart, Joe Lovano, Victor Lewis, John and Bucky Pizzarelli, Cecil McBee, George Cables, and Roscoe Mitchell.
