The Art of the Saxophone Ballad

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Earl Simmons
With a wealth of saxophone masters spread across 21 cuts, Indigo's Art of the Saxophone Ballad is an hour-long treatise on the power of reeds to put over a ballad. Highlights are plentiful, but extra points go to Coleman Hawkins' "How Deep Is the Ocean," Ben Webster's "I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good," Charlie Parker's "Embraceable You," Dexter Gordon's "It's the Talk of the Town," and Stan Getz's "And the Angels Swing."
