    wow, that's great. thanks for the info, Angel. I'll get my order in. There are excerpts from mcallister's new cd on his website under 'discography' and they definitely are great teasers!
    I heard them play the zupko piece live, and, yes, Michigansax is right.

    Default "loudest flute player alive" makes CD

    "Andy Findon -Tracked" http://www.quartzmusic.com/cd/QTZ2029.htm

    With the help of a few friends and family, I've put together 19 tracks, several featuring saxes. in particular a Vivaldi Bassoon concerto on the Baritone and my arrangement of Clair de Lune for Altos and Baritone choir.

    Maybe check out a few samples and discover there's more to me than just being the "loudest flute player alive"!

    That looks like a very interesting CD. I'll keep an eye out for it.

    In the meantime, here is a link for the new recording of the Rascher Saxophone Quartet with Paul Hillier and the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir:

    Anyone heard this one yet?

    I got McAllister's new CD a few days ago. The CD opens with a soprano sax piece by Roshanne Etezady called Streetlegal where he flexes his soprano altissimo chops. Very intense. Next, is one of the greatest Sonatas that the saxophone has: Albright. I personally found the third movement a little loud and the Mad Dance a little under tempo. Still very precise and in tune. Babbitt's Accompanied Recitative is a great serialist piece that sounds very hard ensemble-wise. Not overly difficult sounding but very musical. Wanamaker's Sonata deus sax machina is just anawesome piece. The first movement is very virtuosic at times and requires total command of the altissmo register and McAllister just plasters it to the wall. Quite impressive. It's also a study in slap tonguing which is also perfectly executed. Mischa Zupko's In Transit completes the disc. This five movement sonata will become a standard once it gets more play. The second movement "Mango Cafe" looks like a nightmare with all of its mixed meter and a tempo marking of quarter = 230. Overall it's a gorgeous piece. And don't forget about Kathryn Goodson, the pianist on the disc, who is a wolrd class pianist and also accompanies Don Sinta. She is top notch. Hope this helps.

    I agree w/ Michigansax as to the quality of McAllister's new CD which I have just received as well. Definitely one of the best in my collection of around 1000 concert saxo cds. The Etezady is easily one of the few stunning recital works for soprano saxophone.

    I have also come across Michael Ibrahim's new CD of Bach transcriptions. It is available at CDBaby.com.

    Ibrahim's new CD is very nice. Particularly the Violin Concerto. He has a great sound, and technique. Im not sure I agree with some of his choices on the Cello Suite, musically speaking, or on the partita, but overall its a great CD! Highly recommended~

    Dear Andy Findon - re the 'loudest flute player alive' moniker, I was told that by one of your eminent colleagues from up North, let's just say his initials are 'RB'

    Honoured to have your presence!

    New CD release of Al Gallodoro's old LPs "Saxophone Contrasts" and "For Your Listening Pleasure". Now on one CD, available at http://www.algallodoro.com. All light music, but some of the most exciting saxophone playing ever recorded.

    New CD available directly from Thomas Liley at the North American Saxophone Alliance (http://www.saxalliance.org).

    THE SAXOPHONE CRAZE (Early 20th century north american concert saxophonists)

    Restored recordings of Jean Moeremans, H. Benne Henton, Six Brown Brothers, Wheeler Wadsworth, Rudy Wiedoeft, Clyde Doerr, and the Merle Johnston Quartet (incl Arnold Brilhart).

    It is very interesting, aurally tracing the lineage back from Donald Sinta to Larry Teal to Merle Johnston in terms of saxophone tone and vibrato. Very, very similar from generation to generation. Maybe that's what I like so much about Mr. Sinta - he's old school!

    There is a new CD out of a live performance that Don Sinta did at the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) conference last year. He did the Charles R. Young concerto with the Abilene Christian University Wind Ensemble. Not exactly the Dahl concerto but it is a really fun piece. It definately showcases that Sinta sound unmatched by any other. It is available through Mark Custom Recordings (www.markcustom.com). Check it out!!!

    Is this the recording that Dr. Young sends out with the sheet music for the concerto, or is this a different one?

    Angel,

    I looked around on the saxalliance website and could not find any information about THE SAXOPHONE CRAZE. Is there an order form for this cd, or do I need to contact Thomas Liley by email about purchasing this?

    Thanks

    For some reason, it is not on the website. Contact Tom Liley; I got mine from him. $15, I believe. I think it's worth it.

    This CD may not be that new, but I just listened to "Shades of Bach" by Janos Vazsonyi. Most of the CD is solo alto, but the first selection is The Musical Offering, BWV 1079, featuring a duet of alto and sopranino, and the tone is remarkable, not at all what you might expect of the sopranino.

    Saxophonist Raaf Hekkema's CD of the complete Paganini Caprices, Op. 1, for violin. On the MDG label (same as Daniel Gauthier's new CDs), apparently released very recently.

    Done on alto and soprano, Hekkema's performance of the Paganini Caprices includes well-voiced multiphonics, extremely high altissimo, agile slap-tongue, and a fluency with these techniques which I don't believe is surpassed by anyone. The tone is a bit bright, but Hekkema moves from the lowest register to the highest altissimo with relative ease and lightning quickness, and the articulation is always light and rapid.

    http://www.raafhekkema.com.

    Everyone should hear this.
