The Saxophone Mafia will turn 20! Who would have thought of it? The exclusive ensemble, initially regarded sceptically even by its own members, has persistently survived even the most tencious lived normal jazz groups. For 20 years, the Saxophone Mafia developed and changed its music, polished its language, redefined the musical possibilities of a saxophone group.
