Bio

Composer and saxophonist Nathan Hanson has performed in concert halls, clubs, prisons, churches, debutante balls, squats and former Soviet fallout shelters in places ranging from St. Paul to Slovenia; Paris to Pittsburgh; Milano to Milwaukee; and Rome (both Italy and Georgia). Hailed as an “extraordinary performer with a beautiful tone and concept” (Cadence Magazine), his playing has been called “seductively pithy” (Signal to Noise), “lithe and soaring...engaging in judicious honk and splatter” (New York City Jazz Record). He makes his home in St. Paul, MN.
