I'm not a saxophone fanatic and I don't know much on Bach, so I was a little skeptic for the saxophone approach. But I heard the Quartet live and on the radio, and it is very nice. One reporter said: "This is the proof that Bach may have written mostly religious music, but was also thinking of... sax!" They also recorded contemporary music by the founder of the Bl!ndman quartet, which sounds really awful to me.
