Info for Apples & Oranges
Saxophonist Doug Webb delivers the fruits of his labors in abundance with his latest release "Apples & Oranges.
Featuring a program of originals and a few familiar melodies, the album showcases strong showings by organist extraordinaire Brian Charette and drummer Andy Sanesi, who really keep the session in the pocket. These hard hitting tour de force performances affirm Webb s status as a saxophone colossus, and should encourage jazz enthusiasts to enjoy biting into "Apples & Oranges again and again with amazement and delight.
"If not for some surprisingly nondescript renderings of standards—“Spring Is Here,” “In A Sentimental Mood,” “Estaté”—Apples & Oranges would be a flawless harvest and essential listening for all students of swing." (Bob Doerschuk, DownBeat)
