For Tini Thomsen, a musical life without exploration, innovation and a constant broadening of her artistic horizons is unthinkable. The baritone saxophonist and composer constantly seeks new expressive possibilities, forms and fields of activity.

With Shift, the third album from Tini’s MaxSax, the raw energy of its two predecessors gives way to a more nuanced and temperate aesthetic focusing on strong contrasts while leaving the immense power of the music intact.

This is a courageous album of innovative and imaginative compositions with a highly original sound.
