Great new sound
06/20/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Anton Schwartz is a rarity in jazz today. He writes his own music. He is well on his way to creating a new sound for this generation of jazz listeners. You will like this music as a breath of fresh air."
Beautifully performed engaging peices

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Schwartz's saxaphone is a joy to listen to. Smooth yet energizing. The works are instantly memorable. The second time I heard them I already had the feeling I'd known them for a long time. I've had it in my CD player for weeks, now! Highly recommended."
The joys of slow music
11/29/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is cause for celebration when a young artist emerges. Many new musicians try to impress with lots of notes and chords. Schwartz is confident that his ideas are correct and plays the music at his speed to express those ideas. The cut, Poketown, is a nickname given to Anton by another musician who was not accustomed to slow playing. I hope the musician learned something from Anton. I have enjoyed this music on CD and in person."
