Rova Saxophone Quartet explores the synthesis of composition and collective improvisation,
creating exciting, genre-bending music that challenges and inspires. Rova is one of the longest
standing groups in a musical movement that has its roots in a broad spectrum of influences
including postbop, free jazz, avant-rock, and 20th century new music, drawing equal inspiration
from the visual arts and from traditional and popular styles from across the globe. Rova began in
1978, collaborating early on with such like-minded colleagues Henry Kaiser, Fred Frith, John Zorn.
Recent projects have included Electric Ascension, a re-imagining of John Coltrane’s monumental work.
