    The Cool Tenor of Scott Hamilton

    Scott Hamilton is a very accomplished tenor saxophonist in the mold of Zoot Sims - which is high praise indeed. This is a collection of laid-back tracks culled from a decade or more of his rather prolific releases. These ballads work as more than just mood music - the cool jazz of these combos is quite enjoyable to appreciate the musicianship and listen to actively. But if you're looking for background music to a sexy evening in your bachelor's pad, this works well.
