Editorial Reviews

Jeremy Justeson is one of America's finest saxophonists, and this is his debut recording on the American Modern Recordings (AMR) label. This recording contains seven contemporary works, all of which feature the saxophone, and most include at least one other musician. All of the pieces in this album are world premiere recordings, and a few feature the composers performing their own works. Works include: Pistol Packin' Mamma for alto sax, violin and piano; Walimai for also sax and piano; Sultana for soprano sax and piano; schizo 'squito for solo alto sax; Tongue and Groove for alto sax and five-octave marimba (four mallet version); Spirit for alto sax and piano, and Pimpin' for baritone sax and recording.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF EACH TRACK Pistol Packin' Mamma is about three conflicting personalities that are very rarely in harmony with each other Walimai is inspired by a character in Isabel Allende s fascinating collection Cuentos de Eva Luna Sultana takes it's name from a female sultan schizo 'squito is inspired by the schizophrenic life of a mosquito Tongue and Groove is inspired by carpentry, rhythmic interplay, fast tonguing and oral sex The title Spirit refers to raising one's spirits and the general tone is one of warmth and positive emotion Pimpin', the title track, is the only work on the album not by an American composer, and is based on original speech by American pimps and prostitutes

After listening to Jeremy Justeson's "Pimpin'" and his other CD "Juggernaut," there is no doubt in my mind that he is one of the leading classical saxophonists around. Finding a decent recording, let alone player that can play as well as this is hard to come by. If you are a music teacher, saxophone teacher, saxophone student or enthusiast, this CD is a MUST. It has something for everyone, alto music, soprano pieces, brand new pieces and even a wicked baritone piece which bares the same name as the CD; Pimpin'. Like I said before, this CD is a MUST!

Incredible! Stupendous! Uproarious! Hilarious!

Jeremy is a FANTASTIC musician, he OWNS the sax (not A sax, THE sax) and everything on this album is amazing. But, when you get to "Pimpin'" just remember that ....be with this person forever... is my favorite line. That piece is inspiring, trippy, otherworldly....in short, and as someone has already said, a MASTERPIECE. Thank you Jeremy for recording this disc and thanks to Jacob TV for writing that piece. More please!

Dr. Jeremy Justeson's second album is another triumph for saxophone and contemporary classical music. This album features works from several contemporary composers, many of whom accompany Dr. Justeson's full-bodied saxophone sound on this recording. This album showcases extremely demanding technical passages (including altissimo playing) alongside beautiful, delicate legato sections. Justeson accesses every emotion and timbre available to the saxophone.

* The first piece, "Pistol Packin' Mama," was composed by Scott McAllister. It features the internationally recognized violinist Kurt Nikkanen and acclaimed pianist Maria Asteriadou. It is about three conflicting personalities that are rarely in harmony with each other, represented by two dissonant sections with a moment of agreement in a calming middle section.
* "Walimai," a personal favorite, features composer Michael Djupstrom on piano. Based on a short story by Isabel Allende, Walimai tells a tale of terrible loss followed by an eventual release from suffering. The beginning of this work is dominated by a dark and contemplative mood, portrayed aptly by the alto saxophone's meandering melody and open-ended piano chords. The piece breaks suddenly into a dance-like melody in the mid section, featuring some intensely serpentine runs in the saxophone, and slowly builds into a bombastic climax, which transitions to a more delicate and solemn ending.
* "Sultana" features Maria Asteriadou on piano and Dr. Justeson on soprano saxophone. This work is adapted from "Wood," the 4th movement of John Mackey's "Concerto for Soprano Sax and Wind Ensemble." It has an alluringly beautiful melody, and at times, Justeson's soprano sax sounds almost like an oboe or English horn.

When I first saw the cover of this CD I thought, "Aight... aight". I saw the sexy girls and the saxy man ;) (See what I did there?). I downloaded the tracks like a boss and when I played them, I became more angry than I have ever been before. So mad, in fact, that I cried tears of rage and hate. I was so angry because it took this long for someone to make music this amazing. It was insulting to me that it took professional musicians this long to create a masterpiece, no, wait, yes, masterpiece such as this. Of all the great sax players, Bird, Coltrane, other guys, Jeremy Justeson shoots them down with this harder than the light gun that came with the NES shoots down the ducks, or clay birds depending on which mode you select in Duck Hunt. If you don't buy this CD 17 times, you are insulting everyone who has ever picked up a musical instrument in their life except for Ringo Starr, (and yes that includes Pete Best).
