Notes and Editorial Reviews
"...The ensemble is at its peak when performing the original work "Prelude" and Chick Corea’s "La Fiesta", both of which are well suited to the timbre and the idiosyncrasies of the saxophone. Also the fifth selection on the CD, "Jazzentials", is surprisingly tender and moving piece based on the work of Bach. It is among the best of the musical reinventions attempted by Quintessence...However, on their Handel Hallelujah Chorus and Beethoven "Coriolan"...these selections are better suited to more traditional instrumentation..." - MusicWeb International

"I don't own this recording but I listened to several cuts that are available on the site. Can you make a fair review by listening to just the quick examples? I would say the answer to that is no NORMALLY! However, this cannot be considered 'normal'. I think this is the most horrible sound I have ever heard and I love the saxophone. Even if you can get past the awful screeching sound presented by the soprano sax, the intonation is intollerable. If I bought this thing it would wind up in the trash within 20 minutes. I can't imagine anyone enjoying this."
