John Klemmer: Arabesque

Album Notes

While he's not given nearly enough credit, tenor saxophonist John Klemmer remains a crucial musician in the development of both fusion and contemporary jazz. Klemmer channeled the fiery influence of John Coltrane into a big-toned, distinctively direct and melodious style. His classic ARABESQUE, from 1977, was also one of the albums that laid the foundation for smooth jazz. Backed by a small band-featuring Lenny White, one of jazz's funkiest-ever drummers, and Brazilian percussion wizard Airto Moreira, ARABESQUE features breezy, engaging melodies and effervescent Afro-Cuban and Latin rhythms. When this album is playing, it always feels like summertime.
