For even the most avid and best-informed jazz aficionados, the music in this CD may be a huge surprise—and reed players, too, will find much to astonish and delight. The Hollywood Saxophone Quartet was composed of four gifted studio saxophonists, who organized the unit mainly to play original music by contemporary composers with a rhythm section added. In a collection of beautifully played arrangements written by some superbly skilled craftsmen such as Lennie Niehaus, Marty Paich, Russ Garcia, and Jack Montrose, the shadings of tone these men achieve are incredibly delicate and profuse in their colorings. The sheer technical ability, ensemble work, rapport and execution is remarkable—and they swing all the way through.
