Colin Stetson’s futuristic sounding saxophone music perfect for Wynonna Earp
American saxophonist Colin Stetson’s ‘Like Wolves on the Fold’ showed up on the new episode of Wynonna Earp on Friday night — Season 3, Episode 10, “The Other Woman” (September 21st, 2018).
The futurist sounding track was played as Robin and Bobo talk about jazz music, and as Robin lets Bobo listen to his music. In fact, when you listen to Colin Stetson’s ‘Like Wolves on the Fold‘, it sounds like it was written specifically for that scene. It wasn’t.
Colin Stetson’s ‘Like Wolves on the Fold‘ is from his 2017 solo jazz album All This I Do For Glory. The first of a two-part album series Stetson is currently recording. It is the first album he has released where all the music on it was produced by just himself.
The album was well received by both fans and critics, and appeared on various critics lists of ‘Best of 2017‘ including at Gigwise, PopMatters and Drowned in Sound.
