Various Saxophone Groups recorded within the period 1995-2004 directed by Miles Osland

The saxophonists featured herein are undoubtedly brilliant players and despite their being drawn from a ten-year period the level of performance is consistently high.

Being devoid of any rhythm players gives this CD a one-dimensional aspect which may well appeal to lovers of the different saxophones, but doesn't necessarily achieve the ultimate listening pleasure for the more regular Jazz listeners.
