Kind Of Blue & Pink (Jon Crosse)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
Culled from two previous records (Lullabies Go Jazz and Cool Mother Goose Suite) from sax player Jon Crosse, Kind of Blue & Pink presents a number of old nursery rhymes and lullabies set to strong jazz arrangements.

While it seems like a basic novelty album for new parents (along the lines of the Mozart Effect albums or Baby Einstein), the arrangements here are surprisingly strong. Crosse did a fine job putting together a set of performers with a classic nightclub sound, creating music that essentially just happens to have kiddie lyrics. The sound is that of a large ensemble in a small club, or alternately, a mid-sized big band. Crosse himself turns in fine performances on a series of saxes, but is also helped by an able rhythm section (Putter Smith or Mel Graves on bass, David Witham on piano, Paul Kreibich on drums).
