The Encore Saxophone Quartet
Members of the Encore Saxophone Quartet perform American Made Sax: music of George M. Cohan, Michael Torke, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, Harold Arlen, Alec Wilder, and George Gershwin.
The Encore Saxophone Quartet is a Los Angeles–based saxophone quartet formed in 1981 by USC colleagues Douglas Masek and Mark Watters. Their extensive repertoire consists of original compositions and arrangements that bridge many diverse styles from the classics to modern jazz. All ensemble members are established soloists and chamber-music performers who reside in the greater Los Angeles area.
