Comment: CD in very good condition and plays perfectly. Complete with all inserts/artwork also in very good condition--no sawcuts or other markings. Free upgrade to 1st class shipping. Mailed in a sturdy bubble mailer. Buy with confidence from a one-person operation, where items are always in stock and accurate grading and descriptions are the norm, not the exception--as my feedback substantiates.

An excellent CD for Alto lovers that love standards! This CD is great for learning the sound and style of the alto sax. Herring, Woods, and Hart display three different sounds and three different styles, exposing the versatility of the instrument. Despite their distinct sounds, these three blend in some of the sweetest, smoothest harmony ever heard by any saxophone ensemble. A must buy for all saxophone players!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Musicians in the know have regarded Phil Woods as one of the 2-3 greatest alto players--perhaps the very best-- since Charlie Parker's passing over half a century ago. But for some reason, he seems to disappear much of the time, or to maintain a low to invisible profile, whether intentionally or not. After Bird, it was pretty much Paul Desmond or Cannonball Adderley or Sonny Stitt who received the jazz public's attention (McLean to a lesser extent), then it was Eric Dolphy, Oliver Nelson (unfortunately not enough due to his busy arranging schedule), then Art Pepper, then Ornette Coleman (still is), then Lee Konitz (still is). The reason? Maybe Woods is a less photogenic, less extroverted personality type who confines his talking to the horn and doesn't know how to work the "image" and the press (someone should tell him that captain's cap covering his face isn't ever going to cut it). Or maybe it's because despite his seemingly limitless technique, and powerful yet clean, full, and "uncluttered" sound, there's a lack of emotion, or soul--that lingering warmth and glow--especially compared to Cannonball, Sonny, or Art.

Regardless, since the death of Sonny Stitt in 1982 there's no alto player who can touch him. After recently hearing his 1956 session, "Four Altos," I was sufficiently impressed to look for another. Here he is, the grandpa of the group, taking on two of the schooled, sizzling, extroverted prodigies of the horn, and once again showing how it's done--the ideas, phrasing and articulations, and of course that matchless tone.

This is a wonderful CD if you love jazz and love the alto saxophone! Phil Woods is a living legend and sounds great as always. He is accompanied by Vincent Herring and Antonio Hart who both play with a unique style and personality while still showing a deep understanding of the language and traditions of jazz as well.

Highly Recommended!
