A nepenthe is an elixir that relieves one’s worries and sorrows. In Homer’s Odyssey, the nepenthe is a potion given to Helen to cure her woe. Saxophonist/composer Dayna Stephens finds his nepenthetic reprieve while performing. He relates to it as an elating feeling of inspiration and enlightenment, a musical high. On his new recording, That Nepenthetic Place, Stephens presents a program of mostly original music written or arranged specifically for this astounding assemblage of musical talent.
