Sax quartet,Singer,Drums,is there a producer in the House???

Are you thinking about purchasing this cd?
, Truth is this an Excellant listen!This version of the quartett has a tremendous ability to phrase music as one player.
The picks of songs tend to wander a bit though the"Pavane" by Morton Gould starts things off in a curious manner(i love their version of this piece) the other pieces are a mixture of easier listening broadway type pieces .
it would have been much stronger to have a connecting theme binding these pieces together .
How about "a Concert of Morton Gould Pieces "
Or if you want the masses a set of rock and or Jazz clssics
This idea of concept albums came from sets of 4 78 rpm records
that had a verbal and music theme running through all the songs
Frank Sinatra loved this idea of "Concept album".
in his album called "Antonio Carlos Jobim"he solves both issues =the same type music and or composer and voila! a singer on the top of these great pieces Tops off this Masterpiece.
Many years ago(1986) i roomed with the soprano of this Sax Quartett.
i told him "i am writing sax quartets and adding a soprano part and a percussionist to spice up the pieces"
He said "i do not think that that is a good idea at ALL!"
Later he said"i think you should write the pieces the very way that you want!"
So,many years later this Quartett goes big even playing for President Clinton!
Funny thing here is that this CD uses percussion (but is buried in the mix ) and only punctuates the pieces here.
This is a crying shame!!!(North Carolina talk)
With a more cohesive Theme for the songs used and a tremendous Vocalist on the top (even the sax players could sing at times)with the vocalists.
Main point.....
this cd could have been a total listening experience and sold tons of copies with the right producer.
Later on in years there was another cd by this soprano sax player.
Oddly enough this used rap modern elements and tried to be cool .Ouch on my ears.
Still after All this info. i would go and see these guys (the original guys please)
Any Time. A Totally rewarding Experience!!!
Last Thought ,when i think of the Soprano sax player affore mentioned,i think of him on RailRoad tracks,and the funny thing is that he did a cd with him laying on Train Tracks.
If you are looking for just 4 players you will find no better group
They were heaven to listen to L I V E !!
