Las Palmas artist, BaBa Sax, started playing the sax at the age of 12 and soon realized that people enjoyed hearing him play. During high school, BaBa Sax played alto sax in Gonzalo Rubalcaba’s jazz band, and Isaac Delgado ́s salsa band. He has also played and composed for several music projects in Cuba and Spain.
BaBa Sax, whose live shows imply a deep connection with audiences, has had the privilege of opening for big named artist Johnny Griffin and Grammy nominated Irakere to name a few. He is currently performing with various artists on saxophone and flute, as well as with his own band, and dedicating lots of his time to music production.
BaBa Sax recently released the electro-pop single “My Heart Could Burst”. And obviously, the fascinating thing about the song is that the lead instrument is the saxophone. A brass instrument played with a single-reed mouthpiece. Nothing could be further away from modern pop than the saxophone, yet BaBa Sax delivers a hot melody over an electro groove that sizzles and thrills like no other.
BaBa Sax’s tone and sense of melody is stunning as he evokes a myriad of emotions with his phrases. This is no more evident than on “My Heart Could Burst” which is dripping with funky and moving lines that are unheard of in modern dance music. BaBa Sax’s rare ability to use his instrument to convey emotions and create a groove is amazing; it’s as though he is baring his thoughts and feelings to the listener.
Check out “My Heart Could Burst” for his smoldering sax phrasing, within a tight and frisky beat which alternately swings and sways while BaBa’s saxophone creates a dynamic sense of movement. If you’re looking for the epitome of smooth instrumental pop-dance, from a modern master of the sax, look no further than BaBa Sax.
This one cooks like nothing you’ve ever heard in this genre. BaBa Sax ‘s playing is impressively strong and full bodied over an insistent beat and a few rap lines thrown in for good measure. From the moment the song starts till the last note, it will have you shivering, as BaBa Sax moves and grooves like a whispering wind on a hot summer’s night, and if like me, you love the sensual sound of the sax, then “My Heart Could Burst” will truly be sweet candy to your ears!
