In the latest edition of The Out Door, we profile long-time jazz/noise/whatever trio Borbetomagus, in advance of a rare US appearance at this weekend’s Cropped Out Festival in Lexington, KY. Marc Masters talked to each member of the band individually; the following is the full transcript (edited slightly for clarity) of his conversation with saxophonist Jim Sauter.
The Out Door: How did you first start playing music?
Jim Sauter: Well I started before I got into the school band with some piano. My mother’s a fairly accomplished pianist. Once I got into elementary school, sax was the instrument I took up in 4th grade.
