Saxophone Colossus for all occasions
on 11 September 2013
I have found this excellent sounding CD to be perfect for different situations i.e. a great mood lifter for getting the day off to a good start, for playing over a romantic meal, or just plain chilling out too, as I have this morning looking from my bedroom watching the rain fall outside.
I have heard saxophone elements of "St Thomas" somewhere else but I'm not sure where - a film maybe? I am already familiar with Moritat (Mack The Knife) one of Frank Sinatra's most well known songs, and it's lovely to have a jazz instrumental version. "You Don't Know What Love Is" has been excellently covered in previous reviews and is a favourite track of mine from the album. "Strode Road" - another track with familiar sounding elements from where I do not know, and "Blue 7", make up the other sublime tracks on this exceptional cd.
As I started off stating, "Saxophone Colossus" is a great sounding album for so many occasions. Highly recommended.
