5.0 out of 5 stars Opposite reaction March 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a fine example of a various array of different new music. The fact that it has Donald Sinta performing is an extra treat! Only few recordings are available and are extremely hard to find with Donald Sinta on them. The previous feedback left by the other person is obviously uneducated. I am offended by the tasteless comments of the peon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Re-release December 23, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Having any available recording of Donald Sinta is a benefit to the musical profession at-large. Needless to say, he is a rare artist who transcends the saxophone genre, and it is unfortunate there isn't more of a recorded legacy of this major performer/teacher. As reflected in the reviews of his work by major critics over the past thirty years, he is indeed one of the most gifted wind soloists ever, and any musician can learn from his artistry. Students of the saxophone 'must' have this important re-release by New World Records to hear how one should play beyond the limitations and aesthetic constraints of this misunderstood classical instrument.

I am in agreement with some of the other reviewers. Donald Sinta has influenced me and my playing so greatly, I don't know where I would be if I had never come across his wonderful playing, which sounds I have been trying to echo myself.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Mediocre Old Days January 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Someday we'll all look back and see that the line between Academic Serialism and Academic Minimalism...was a line. Not a radical change. The key word is "Academic". It denotes certain elements. For example, take Sollberger's Sunflowers. It has moments of beauty, moments of audacity, moments of simplicity - a pretty tune, interesting sounds. But the whole framed within such "well - made piece" structure: the shrieking highpoint, the pitch unfolding...This unrelenting "well - madeness" hasn't left us - it's just more modal now, in a groovier rhythm.
Robert Morris' piece Motet on Doo-dah uses the beloved "interaction with vernacular elements" trope - audibly, I might add (pace Kyle Gann!). Just atonally.That's really the only difference from how the "Totalists" do it. Again, cool sounds, to no great end. It's funky in spots, but only in spots. But it arcs like a good "well - made" piece should. Robert Hall Lewis' Inflections is one of those "lets throw in every extended technique possible and wow the squares" kind of pieces. But the free improvising of someone like Mark Dresser - who comes up with something like this in his sleep - has rendered such pieces obsolete. And this one's ENDLESS! Ralph Shapey brings a little more class to the proceedings. Whatever you can say about the guy, he's some sort of master. But he missed a certain point. A piece like Varese's Density achieves some of its goals by a combination of an inexorable structural flow and the presentation of certain events that function like shocks, resisting development.That's why it still rocks us. All of Shapey's strong phrases become "developed" to death. But that's the well-made way: fast music, to get us into it -"wild". Then some slow music: "lyrical". Then back to the dreaded EE-yaw phrase to wrap it all up!
