Neither the best nor the worst

"This recording is particularly notable for its rare inclusion of orchestral accompaniment in the *Scaramouche*. While the orchestra itself is unfortunately not in top form, it's still worth listening to.It is disturbing that Ryo Noda, who composed the "Japanese Improvisation", receives not a single mention or credit on the CD or in the liner notes! The last work included, it does not fit the rest of the disc, being neither classical-style nor "for orchestra". Sohre Rahbari's performance is acceptable; however, she lacks technical polish.The remainder of the recording rehashes works which all saxophonists should already be familiar with, and there are plenty of better recordings of these available."
