Rudy Weidoeft - "Kreisler of the Saxophone"
Robert J. Silvia | Lander, Wyoming United States | 04/08/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"He's not your typical jazz saxophonist. His playing is amazing. He had fantastic tounging techniques. I have never heard anything like this before. His ability to jump from the high octave to the very low octave and back again, in fast tounging grace note passages is equally amazing. On this CD you can hear him play both the alto and the now obsolete C-Melody sax, which was a very popular sax to play in his day. I would recommend any saxophonist have a listen to this. A word of caution is in order though: These cuts were taken from old 78 rpm records. They do not have the high quality you would expect in a modern CD recording. That stated, Rudy should still be listened to today."

"For some reason the title of this collection is constantly gotten wrong online. If you want a sizable collection of Wiedoeft's recordings, or want to hear some fine sax playing, buy this- it's easily found from many retailers online. Don't expect modern sound quality- these are all 20's or older and the age shows. BTW- as an added curiosity Wiedoeft's accompanist on some of these sides is Oscar Levant!"
