Joseph Shabason is a Toronto-based saxophonist, composer, and member of Destoryer’s live group. One year after debut solo full-length Aytche, he announced the release of a new album. Anne is out on November 16th via Western Vinyl. “November” is a new excerpt which features Italian composer and musician Gigi Masin. He had this to say of working with Joseph:

Writing music together without actually being in the same room it’s pretty easy these days. However, by doing so you can often lose something in the process: the human touch. I’m a firm believer that the human touch is indispensable, certain situations work much better when that’s considered. This is exactly what happened with Joseph – a talented person, also a very patient one who’s been able to endure my constant giving advice and to translate our humanity into music, especially our different points of view. A beautiful and rare thing.”

Shabason said the following on Masin: “About four years ago my friend Graeme told me to listen to the album Wind by Gigi Masin. Listening to Wind was one of those musical moments where you feel like you’re listening to something that you’ve been waiting for all your life.”
