On Leap of Faith: "Alien yet familiar, bizarre yet completely fascinating. Expanding, contracting, erupting, settling down, always as one force..." - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG
On Metal Chaos Ensemble: "... using unique strategies to yield densely active and eerily surreal music, an incredible excursion through experimental improvisation." - Squidco website staff

Leap of Faith
Boston-based saxophonist Steve Norton has been performing and recording for over 35 years, with a bunch of folks to whom he is deeply and forever in debt. His recent work has taken a turn toward more sound-based concerns and investigations into performance gestalt. His focus is on improvisation, which is filtered through a strongly compositional sensibility. Current projects include Duck That, Grizzler, Symptomatic, Kilter, Tough Day Tubing, Ricochet, Big & little, LMNo!, Grau Garten, solo performance and duos with Vic Rawlings, Curt Newton, Matt Samolis, Noell Dorsey, Mike Bullock, Lucio Menagon, Marc Bisson and Walter Wright. He also plays rock with Animal Hospital Ensemble and Mission Creep.
Steve’s webpage cited above contains a discography of his released recordings.
