"Lewis Keel is a music teacher in the New York public school system, and while my hat's off to him for devoting his life to this worthy profession, I have to say that he sounds like a high school musician. Having been a high school saxophonist myself, I can honestly say I recognize talent when I hear it, and it isn't heard in high school bands very often.He has the technical skills to get around the instrument as he adequately demonstrates on "Day by Day" and "Anthropology," but he has no real touch or feeling for what he's playing. Moreover, he's prone to squeaks and squawks, a la the kids who play woodwinds in public school bands. Maybe I'm just tired of hearing some of the old stand-bys like "Love for Sale" and "Lover Come Back to Me," but if so, Lewis Keel is contributing to it. His treatment of "Quiet Nights" is about as clinical as it gets, a style I would call "Bossa Snora."I'm sorry, Lewis. I know you're probably a good man, but stick to teaching and stay out of the recording studio."
"A Customer" is wrong. 1st rate jazz CD. By collector

""A Customer" is wrong. This is an excellent jazz CD, by a very under-rated player. I own this CD. It is one of my favorites. It swings hard. Its foot pattin'. I usally don't write reviews, but I could not let "A customer" do this music an injustice. One only need to research the sidemen on this date. All of them are first rate, i.e., Jimmy Ponder etc. These sidemen would not play with a tenor that could not keep up with them. Nuff' said. This CD is a bargain/steal!"
