Review:
This recording demonstrates sensitivity in the saxophone lines of Eugene Rousseau, the wind accompaniment of the Winds of Indiana, and the conducting of Fredrick Fennel. This recording shows the utmost musically in all areas. Saxophone Vocalise will serve as a great pedagogical tool in showing the combination of a good soloist, and wind ensemble.
