Editorial Reviews

Review

"Velvety...all romance...big, smooth tone...McKenna and his mates dare to play pretty and get away with it." -- Philadelphia Inquirer, July 1, 2001

About the Artist

Larry McKenna got his first big break in 1959 when he went on the road as a member of the saxophone section in the Woody Herman Band. His unlimited technique and beautiful soft-edged tone has graced the Al Raymond All-Star Big Band, Michel Legrand and Frank Sinatra. Because of his fertile musical mind, he is also a well-respected educator at Temple University, West Chester University, and Philadelphia Community College.

Larry Mckenna is "unfortunately" one of the last great musicians and saxaphone players to play so lyrically and produce such a beautiful sound. Having been around Philadelphia most of my life, I've had the privledge of listening to Larry in person many times. This work is just a small sampling of this man's talents and has to be one of the most beautiful cd's ever produced!

Being a sax player in a professional band I an always looking for sax players to listen to to get new ideas in playing styles. A friend recommended listening to Larry Mckenna. Well I did and I really enjoy the soft sound and style of this player. Great playing style. I plan to check out more of his CD's. Great CD.

I've been a Larry McKenna groupie since my high school days in Philly. Sounded like Stan Getz then and still sounds great today. Playing standards is Larry's forte in my opinion and this CD is nothing but. Enjoy!

He's a great player, melodic, etc. But honestly how far do you go to copy one artist?
