Overview

RCA digs into its vast jazz holdings -- including several tracks from their Bluebird line -- to bring you a fine sampler of the music's top saxophonists. Covering the swing, bop, and hard bop eras and their many stars, Saxophone Anthology includes highlights from Ben Webster and Duke Ellington ("Cotton Tail"), Benny Carter ("Cocktails for Two"), Coleman Hawkins ("Indian Summer"), Charlie Parker ("Victory Ball"), Sonny Rollins ("St. Thomas"), and Stan Getz ("Early Autumn"), among many others. A saxophone history lesson and excellent introductory jazz disc all in one.
