Notes & Reviews:

The title Journey is both in honor of Lori Laitman's beautiful piece and in recognition of the constant journey traveled by every musician. The idea of recording songs emerged from a project of studying and transcribing the recordings of great singers. This set of sixteen pieces from the 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries provides the perfect opportunity to express the full range of colors available to a saxophonist. The Italian Songs of the 17th and 18th Centuries are beautiful love songs, at their core, which range from joy and elation to heartbreak and despair. Five songs by Gustav Mahler are light-hearted and virtuosic as well as passionate and expressive. "Vocalise-Étude" by Olivier Messiaen, is a haunting, yet simple piece where the adaptation to a wind instrument is seamless. "Journey" by Lori Laitman, was adapted by Laitman for the saxophone to explore the varied and beautiful colors of the instrument.
