Format: Audio CD
The 1st and last songs on this CD had been issued as a single "78" over 50 years ago when I first heard it and bought it. It has always been my favorite record. I am overjoyed at finding these two cuts again. Some of the other cuts are very good also while a few are not so good. But, who cares?. I have loaned the CD to a DJ I am aquainted with from a jazz station and hope that this might lead to a deserved revival of the world's greatest Saxophonist- Freddie Gardner. A tragic loss.

Freddy Gardner was the most explicit player of this instrument I have ever heard. His style, expression and the emotion he brings to his music could bring tears to your eyes. Never have I experienced such a wonderful rendition of the marvellous songs he recorded particularly with Peter Yorke and his Orchestra.
Duke Ellington made a fitting tribute to his ability, calling him one of the greatest sax. swing players of a non American Jazz player abroad.
His tragic death in 1950 from a stroke at age 39 left a vacuum in the world of the great saxophone music he may have created.
To me, he remains to this day one of England's finest saxophone instrumentalists if not the best in the world.

Freddy Gardner plays the type of music you can memorize and play for auditions. Beautifully phrased, nice arrangements, and easy to listen to. I began to play alto sax in the 50's; Freddy Garner's playing inspired me.

Great collection of Freddy Gardner's recodings most of which my grandmother had on 78rpm records. He is a cross between a clasical and pop style player with excellent technique especially in the altisimo register. Great tone on his Selmer "radio improved" alto sax and tragically died from a stroke at 39 (1950) while fixing his son's bicycle!

Great artist - great sound from the past. The selections on this album do a nice job of capturing the essence of Gardner, and this purchase should provide us with hours of listening enjoyment.
