Notes & Reviews:

This recording is a tribute to the saxophonist Sigurd Rascher, who was very influential on the development of a body of music suitable for performance by saxophonists. His efforts have resulted in a large percentage of the best music yet composed for the saxophone. All of the music contained on this disc has some association with Rascher.
