Tommy Smith - Gymnopedie - The Recorder Magazine
01 August 1999The Recorder Magazine
Although representing the classical side of saxophonist Tommy Smith, there is no escaping the jazz influence, not only on his sensuous performance of Satie, and supercharged interpretations of Bartok, but also on the two very individual sonatas of his own.
Classical pianist Murray McLachlan enters entirely into the spirit of Smith's art. If you can imagine a recorder jazz album by Piers Adams you will understand what this disc is all about.
