"I have all Andy Sheppard's CDs. I just love his sound and he is one of my favourite saxophonists ever. If there's a better UK-based saxophone player out there, I haven't heard him (or her) yet.
Produced by Steve Swallow and featuring people like Orphy Robinson on vibes, Randy Brecker on trumpet, Dave Buxton on keys, Mamadi Kamara on percussion and Simon Gore on drums, on this self-titled debut (released 20 years ago), Andy showed the promise of what was yet to come with his light but dexterous touch on tenor and soprano saxophones.
It's a great debut and one I would recommend to anyone who loves the saxophone. My personal favourite tunes are "Sol", "Want A Toffee?", "Twee", "Liquid" & "Ninoska's Waltz". If you're an Andy Sheppard fan, well, this is simply a must-have!"
