I am a soprano/alto saxophonist that can perform as a jazz duo, trio or quartet.

I also co-lead the Erica Seguine & Shannon Baker Jazz Orchestra. We are an 18+ member ensemble that performs all original, progressive music. In addition to the traditional big band instrumentation, their orchestra employs voice, woodwinds and other colors. We are comprised of the new wave of NYC jazz musicians and perform unique and sometimes quirky musical landscapes influenced by a variety of genres including jazz, classical, rock, folk and world music. Music is composed by by Erica Seguine (composer, arranger, conductor) and Shannon Baker (composer, arranger, saxophonist, flute, clarinet).

Some words about our jazz orchestra:

"Elegant but shapeshifting original compositions and a quirky sense of humor (and a Bach tango), a pleasant change from your usual big band fare." (New York Music Daily)

"Seguine and Baker approached big band like a live oil painting. Colors were arranged by vibrancy and emotional content, not necessarily by section (high instruments with other high instruments, for example). The co-leaders took a controlled but liberalized approach to big band, where Bach, Dave Holland and the poetry of Rainier Marie Rilke are all fair game." (Dan Lehner, All About Jazz)
