Jonathan Wintringham


Jonathan Wintringham


“A saxophonist of unusual sophistication…Changing his color in ways so sensitive that he bordered on alchemist.”
-Philadelphia Inquirer

“Absolutely stunning...nothing short of a virtuoso.”
-The Sax Magazine, Japan

“Saxophonist Jonathan Wintringham can make his horn sing. When he plays, his sound has a way of swallowing a room and all that's in it, drawing you into the musical world he is creating.”
-Arizona Daily Star

“A major force in the saxophone world…He has a nice and resonant sound; he boasts an excellent set of fingers and articulation; he phrases with an artistic awareness well beyond his years; and he tackles the postmodernist content of his program with extreme volume shifts, [and] daring color changes.”
-American Record Guide

“I was not so much ‘pleasantly surprised’ as ‘blown away,’
first by the music itself and then by the performance.  Wintringham scored a resounding triumph.
-The Chestnut Hill Local, Philadelphia
