5.0 out of 5 stars sax and strings
Such a lush and almost over the top sound. Not kitsch, but certainly a period piece. A mellow companion to the more Third Stream earnestness of Getz and Sauter's Focus of around same time.

Such a lush and almost over the top sound. Not kitsch, but certainly a period piece. A mellow companion to the more Third Stream earnestness of Getz and Sauter's Focus of around same time.

Sax and strings is a bit like piano and vibes, has to be done right or can be tedious. The string quartet arrangements here are superior (Johnny Richards, I forger his original Hispanic name, but he is a name that interests people) This is not strings bought off the peg, but crafted stuff. Webster's sound is excellent. Piano work is very tasteful too.

Only 36 mins long, but if you can get at a competitive price, so worth it. Keep between Focus and Coltrane's Ballads album, and somewhere near Nat King Cole's classic Capitol albums.

This review is from: The Warm Moods (MP3 Download)
I bought the vynil version of this in about 1966 and it's so worn that I can almost play both sides at once!. It's hard to believe that someone with such a beautiful tone and wonderful sense of expression could be such a "difficult" person.
