Colin Stetson on five saxophonists

“New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light,” the new album by Montreal-based saxophonist Colin Stetson, is a hulking beast. By turns churning and ethereal, the album exhibits the power of the saxophone in new and unexpected ways.

“I’ve always been attracted to a vulnerability in the instrument,” says Stetson, who will play a sold-out show at the Museum of Fine Arts on Thursday. “So much of what it has always done in music has been the opposite of that. So the players who were able to express that strength while still having a vulnerable side, I’ve always admired that.”
