A first-call session horn man for many indie-rock bands and a collaborator with icons such as Laurie Anderson and Tom Waits, Colin Stetson has forged an engrossing solo canon, too. On works like his New History Warfare trilogy, he uses his bass saxophone and other brass instruments as weapons of mass deconstruction. Stetson’s compositions exude a seething power and unusual beauty in a minimalist context, breathing fire, not academic dust. Don’t blow it: Catch this intense master exhale spiritual magic.
