When one thinks of a jazz quartet, the first thing you picture is one or two trumpets, a trombone, a saxophone and maybe a French horn, or possibly a tuba.

Sax Appeal is a break from the norm, combining four saxophones to come up with a unique sound that has been impressing audiences since the quartet was formed a year ago.

Started in 2011 by local saxophone enthusiast Jarrod Goldsmith, the group was created with a mission to promote live music in the Ottawa region and provide a unique source of entertainment for everything from weddings and receptions to large festivals such as the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival where they headlined this past summer.

Sax Appeal is all about flexibility in terms of song choice and the theme for any occasion. "We customize every performance to specifically suit the particular event," says Goldsmith, who plays baritone sax in the group. "Normally we do ambiance music but we can play anything from classical music to reggae."

The group of professional players in Sax Appeal has a wide range of experiences and talents in the small world of local music. Mike Mullin plays the tenor sax; Dave Renaud plays alto sax and J.F. Picard plays soprano sax. Together Goldsmith refers to the quartet as the Four Tenors of the saxophone.

Sax Appeal hopes to propel the saxophone quartet into the spotlight as a viable business opportunity. Goldsmith notes that he is "creating a niche in the market for the saxophone quartet." While they can play larger events, their specialty are weddings and corporate events.

At the end of the day, passion is what drives these musicians. "We have to make this work, I can't think of another way to earn a living" Goldsmith stated.

Watch out for Sax Appeal at the prestigious 2012 Manning Innovation Awards on Oct. 17 at the Ottawa Convention Centre, and Oct. 24 at the Ottawa Book Awards at the Shenkman Arts Centre.
