Editorial Reviews

With over 15 recordings released under his name, critically acclaimed saxophonist Walt Weiskopf's newest release is his first live recording simply titled Live. Weiskopf assembled a trio of top musicians for the concert at the biannual North American Saxophone Alliance convention at the University of South Carolina that includes Renee Rosnes, Paul Gill and the late Tony Reedus for whom the CD is dedicated. Weiskopf spoke of Tony as, 'The best jazz drummer I ever knew.' Most of the music was penned by Weiskopf along with a couple of beautifully arranged standards. If you've never heard him play live in concert, here's your chance to hear something very special.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the first time that I listen to this tenor sax player, and I am impressed. The recording is characterized by fiery sax solos that inspire the rest of the group. It's a live recording, which adds to the magic. The recording also includes some ballads such as Little Minor Love Song and the standard Blame it on my Youth (likely the highlight of this recording). Weiskopf does a good job of leading the session but not dominating it, giving the other musicians to provide beautiful solos as in Love for Sale where Rene Rosnes and Tony Reedus have their solos. Scottish Folk Song is probably the most innovative of all the selections, and quite enjoyable. Dizzy Spells/Jay-walking provides the most swing from the group. Overall, a really enjoyable session with fiery sax solos and an inspired quartet.

This is a fantastic recording. Weiskopf's writing/playing is tremendous but hearing his studio work played live is even more intoxicating. If you are a fan of Coltrane you need this. But beware. You will be inclined to pick up all of Weiskopf's albums... look for Tea for Two. Equally amazing.
