Sax for Stax by Gerald Albright features Will Downing, Ledisi, Kirk Whalum, and Philip Bailey. Gerald Albright has been serving up "Sweet Pain" on his soulful saxophone for an ever-growing audience that spans across R&B, "Quiet Storm," traditional jazz and smooth jazz lines. Albright once again demonstrates his unique soulful sound while paying homage to one of the greatest eras of american music history.

This item was ordered from a reputable supplier and was told about the impossibilities of obtaining. I was quite happy to have found it on Amazon, for a higher cost, but it was all worth it. I knew nothing about the artist but got attracted to the fact it was "Stax" music. Item arrived on time as promised and was well accepted. I would definately reccommend this item to anyone that loves the cool sound of Sax.

This is right up there among my favorites. His treatment of old stax mixes is refereshing, and his creative sax play adds another dimension to the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars MY MY MY whew April 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This music is rich! Gerald Albright became my favorite sax player shortly after this CD came out. I always liked him before, but this whole CD puts me in heaven. With an awesome supporting cast and song selection he has put together a CD that any jazz lover should own. If you don't like this music there is something terribly wrong with you.

Via Facebook he has told me he has a new CD coming out in June. I'll be one of the first to purchase it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Might be the best Gerald Albright CD I have June 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is probably the best CD of Gerald Albright's that I have, with the possible exception of his excellent compilation CD from a few years back. It's certainly the best non-compilation of his I own, as it's terrific from start to finish, with a lot of good energy put into some classic hits along with three originals.

It starts out with the very up-tempo them from "The Men", then slows it down slightly with "Knock On Wood", which has a nice beat to it. He slows it down all the way with a nice cover of the Isaac Hayes ballad "Never Can Say Goodbye", which features Will Downing, and keeps it right about there with the beautiful "Memphis Passion", one of the three originals. He comes back to it later with "I Stand Accused", after Ledisi helps out on "Respect Yourself". "Cheaper to Keep Her" and "Walkin' Down Beale Street" bring the tempo back up, the latter being the second original. "What You See Is What You Get" is well-done, with a nice helping hand from Philip Bailey, and he closes nicely with more of the same energy he started with on "Who's Making Love" and "W.C. Handy Hop", the latter being the last original recording on the CD.

All in all, it's an excellent effort from a guy who's gone down the R&B route before, and with similar success. The covers are excellent, and he hits home runs with all three original recordings.

3.0 out of 5 stars So so November 28, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Knock on wood was cool, as was Never Can Say Goodbye, I wish Will could have sung the song instead of just doing vocals. I also would have liked to have heard him cover Johnnie Taylor's I Believe In You, You Believe In Me and the Dramatics In The Rain. Enough covers, Gerald, except for the usual one or two you do on your studio albums. Speaking of covers, since you and Will seem to be pretty tight, how about getting him and Maysa Leak to cover the song Ain't Understanding Mellow by Jerry Butler and Brenda Lee Eager? Just a thought.
