Recognized for his “glowing mahogany tone” (Seen and Heard International) and “pristine clarity, enviable precision, and emotional heat” (Classical Voice of North Carolina), Steven Banks is establishing himself as an important young artist on the saxophone, which is rarely heard as a solo concert instrument.
