Features the latest remastering. Includes a Japanese description, lyrics. Features original cover artwork. A legendary album from this tenor genius from Chicago – a hell of a player who emerged in the same generation as Clifford Jordan, John Gilmore, Eddie Harris, and Johnny Griffin – yet never fully got his due! The album's easily one of the most sharp-edged for the Bethlehem label – and has the power of a rare Blue Note or Prestige date from the same time – thanks partly to Harold's sharp bite in the tone of his tenor, and partly to an ultra-hip lineup that includes Charles Davis on baritone sax, Julian Priester on trombone, Phillip Wright on piano, Thomas Williams on bass, and Walter Perkins on drums.
The series, produced by Papik and dedicated to the Cocktail Music, started with the tribute to Bruno Martino and continued with Mina and Lucio Battisti tributes, starts this new year 2018 with a Fausto Papetti tribute. The well-known Sax's Italian Musician, was the forerunner of the cocktail genre and in the 70s, 80s and 90s his unforgettable 'Collections' with ultra sexy covers did not go unnoticed by most Italians. The sound of his sax was finally his real characteristic and therefore Cocktail Sax is mainly dedicated to him. The instrumental music is however one of the favorite at present, because of its use as a background for evenings and events, creating a refined, elegant but also friendly atmosphere.
