Comments:Comments by Jan Hanford:

My husband acquired this disc because he is a fan of Astor Piazzola.

I was delighted with their interpretation of Bach's Italian Concerto for saxophone quartet. It's light as a feather and very lyrical. For jazz fans this is an excellent cd and, for the curious, it's a lovely interpretation of the Italian Concerto.
