The Bass Saxophone 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
rhbouchard on LibraryThing 10 months ago
Consists of a lengthy preface, The Red Music, and two novellas - Emoke and then The Bass Saxophone. I found the Red Music too jazzy, although the insight that jazz was an enemy to both Nazis and Communists was interesting. Emoke is a wistful and poingnant story. However, the ending - 20 questions on the return train trip without Emoke did not seem to contribute anything to the story.The Bass Saxophone had an interesting premise and occassional interesting lines, but did not resonate with me. Overall an uneven collection with flashes of brillance.
