    I am listening to Parabolically Bach right now

    The Brandenburg Concertos stick in brain radio; 'Oh Sacred Head Surrounded' rocks even when it isn't Lent

    Not only that, but you can compare players of different schools to see how they evolved...It's interesting to listen to say, Rascher and Mule play the Ibert, then to listen to Rousseau and, say, John-Edward Kelly...and so on and so forth. I did this not too long ago, and it's interesting that there are certain stylistic things that have become closer, and others that have drawn further apart. (For example, the vibrato has become more similar, but the treatment of altissimo is quite different.)

    Yamaha YSS-875EX, Selmer Soloist C**, Ishimori lig,Hemke 3.5
    Yamaha YAS-875EXS, Rousseau RC4 (refaced by Brian Powell), Ishimori lig,Hemke 3.5
    Yamaha YTS-875EX, Rousseau NC4, Ishimori lig, Hemke 3.5
    Kessler Solist Bari, Rousseau NC4, BG Tradition lig, Hemke 3.5

    Has anyone heard this CD just put out on Naxos? Kerkezos isn't my favorite player, but I sort of follow Cage's "The best music is music I haven't heard yet" motto, so a CD of entirely new saxophone music interests me.

    Hey guys, i thought you would like to know that a few weeks ago i spoke with Vincent David and he is recording a solo cd in January. On the cd will be both Berio sequenza's (with above string parts done by David), Boulez Dialogue, Webern Quartet, another berio work and another piece that he's not quite sure of yet. Good news for classical sax.

    Default Caprices

    Someone mentioned earlier on this thread Raaf Hekkema's Paganini Caprices: I just got this CD and I'm really enjoying it. His tone is really beautifull, and his playing is great ( even if not all the high notes are spot on ). What particularly struck me was the beauty of his soprano playing, which actually sounded more appropriate in these pieces than the alto for reasons I'm not quite sure of.

    Jazfyrski,

    Thank you for the update. I had no idea that Naxos has 2 new full-length saxo albums. Also, thanks for confirming Hemke's new release. I waited for the second one to come out so I can order both at the same time.

    Default Henk van Twillert CD

    Hi, KenK

    I bought the Henk van Twillert CD directly from him. It cost 20 euros (about $25.70 USD), but it is a two-disc set. You can contact him at:

    henk@saxunlimited.com

    Henk van Twillert's baritone sax interpretations are very moving and, to me, much more "cello-like" compared to those of other saxophonists (e.g. Todd Oxford [whose version of Suite #1 is very different but also excellent], Paul Wehage, Styliani). My favorite versions were done by Michael Ibrahim and Jamal Rossi (alto saxophone and Suite #1 only).

    BTW, Henk van Twillert's CD states "2nd Edition 2005". I'm not sure if these performances were originally recorded some years ago and recently re-mastered or if they are new recordings.

    I really enjoyed Alex Mitchell's performance on "American Saxophone Music" and also like the pieces on the CD. However, I actually prefer versions by other saxophonists for most of these works.

    Thanks!

    You may have already heard Alex Mitchell as the bari player on the Adelphi Saxophone Quartet's CD "Simply Four Saxophones".

    I recently acquired this new CD(although I don't know how long it's been out) of the Apollo Saxophone Quartet. They're playing 3 different quartets by Barbara Thompson which are very neat and interesting. Although I believe the Apollo guys have a bit of a jazzier sound to their group. Still a pretty interesting CD, IMO.

    Dannel, what a coincidence.

    I just got this one for a great price on eBay and am awaiting its arrival. I like Apollo (and the rest of the British guys) for their freshness of interpretation. Although Apollo's tone concept is different from mine, I'm still very intrigued and would love to see them live someday.

    Angel, how does this recording of "Hard" compare to the Richard Dirlam "Hard" on his "She Sings, She Screams" recording?

    Am I the only one who thinks that new Hemke CD is some of the most beautiful and sensitive playing? I think Hemke sounds really close to what Mule probably sounded like...

    "Poemes for Saxophone, Violin and Piano" on the VMS label. Detlef Bensmann, saxophone. Music of Eychenne, Busch, Bensmann, and Fried. I was wondering when this guy would resurface.

    "The Art of Peter Clinch, Australia's Greatest Saxophonist" on the Divine Art label. Peter Clinch, saxophone and some clarinet. Music of Lovelock, Gross, Penberthy, d'Ombrain. Looks like most, if not all, of this CD is a compilation of past commercial releases.
