Jan Garbarek

Jan Garbarek, born 1947 is Norwegian saxophone player. Garbarek's sound is one of the hallmarks of the ECM Records label, which he joined in 1970 and that has released virtually all of his recordings. His style incorporates a sharp-edged tone, long, keening, sustained notes, and generous use of silence. He began his recording career in the late 1960s, and it has included collaborations with artists like Keith Jarrett, Ralph Towner, Eberhard Weber, Egberto Gismonti, L. Shankar and The Hilliard Ensemble and a host of others, as well as numerous recordings featuring his own band and compositions.

Favorite PSP plug-ins: all of them.

“For several years I´ve enjoyed using plug-ins made by PSP both on stage and in my studio, and I´m always curious whenever they introduce new software, as I know it´s going to be of the highest quality. At some point I switched my onstage gear from hardware to using a laptop, and PSP made the transition painless by custom writing the patches I needed, and in a matter of days! Forever grateful!”
