Wonderfully mellow music. I really have enjoyed how David Sanborn plays the sax on this cd. He also does a few old classics and does them well, in my opinion. Light the fireplace and candles and pop this cd in the player. ;-)

CD Reviews

To me, Sanborn's best

"Lost of old jazz fans dis the current crop of musicians. Indeed, to me, too much of the new sounds like elevator music. But not this fantastic offering from David Sanborn. He hooked me with "The Rev" some twenty years ago, but has not ever done any better than this.He has taken classics, like "Willow Weep for Me", "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes", and "Try a Little Tenderness" and makes them pour out of his sax. They are a souldul mix, and will create the smoothest mood for an evening of quiet SERIOUS romantic music. There is not too much orchestration which gets in the way of his distinctive sound.This album does not contain "The Seduction", but this album itself could easily have had this title."
Precious Like Pearls

"This CD is a gem..... precious like the title track, Pearls! Another great production of Tommy LiPuma and Johnny Mandel's superb orchestration, this CD is very classy and elegant with a line-up of timeless ballads. David Sanborn, a great contemporary jazz saxophonist, has outdone himself once again. Excellent performances!

From the initial track "Willow Weep For Me" to the final track "Nobody Does It Better" (Oleta Adams/vocals) will leave you mesmerized and wanting for more listens! His interpretations of Jerome Kern's "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," Leon Russell's "This Masquerade," Woods/Campbell/Connelly's "Try A Little Tenderness," Mercer/Arlen's "Come Rain Or Come Shine" are simply breathtaking and full of emotions! These tracks are the standouts in this CD.

Got Pearls? Highly recommended and a must-have for smooth jazz buffs. A precious addition to your collection!
