Notes & Reviews:

With «The Art of Saxophone» Nicolas Prost offers a view of the instrument, energizing and dynamic but certainly full of lyricism. The paths he takes make the listener travel into a rather whimsical world full of good mood and optimism. The pieces played draw their inspiration from the roots of world music, jazz, and even from sophisticated variations of Classical music.
