Format: Audio CD
He's not your typical jazz saxophonist. His playing is amazing. He had fantastic tounging techniques. I have never heard anything like this before. His ability to jump from the high octave to the very low octave and back again, in fast tounging grace note passages is equally amazing.
On this CD you can hear him play both the alto and the now obsolete C-Melody sax, which was a very popular sax to play in his day.
I would recommend any saxophonist have a listen to this. A word of caution is in order though: These cuts were taken from old 78 rpm records. They do not have the high quality you would expect in a modern CD recording. That stated, Rudy should still be listened to today.

For some reason the title of this collection is constantly gotten wrong online. If you want a sizable collection of Wiedoeft's recordings, or want to hear some fine sax playing, buy this- it's easily found from many retailers online. Don't expect modern sound quality- these are all 20's or older and the age shows. BTW- as an added curiosity Wiedoeft's accompanist on some of these sides is Oscar Levant!

I was so confused to see Ludwig van Beethoven as the "composer." True, in this in this wonderful mess is a song that incorporates one of Ludwig's songs. Probably the fact that his last name starts with a "B" (early in the alphabet) makes it come out that way. Or just Rudy's legacy. Rudy was a great pitch man, so to speak, for his sound for his sound and his career. Rudoph Valentino changed his name to because of this C-mel sax player. By today's standards this collection is tinny but it captures the verve of that man and that era. Thank you one of the reviewers for making it clear why the title is confusing and thank you Amazon for a credit card that gives me free access to this treasure. I put my own spin on one of the Rudy tunes with my old Conn Cel-mel that I am starting to work with again. Life is great! rob
