Yet another fantastic video featuring our very own Sammy! Thanks again!
"For an alto saxophone feature, Sammy chose Johnny Mandel’s 'Close Enough For Love.' 'The melody of this tune is so pretty,' writes Sammy, 'I knew it was perfect for this album. I think Johnny Mandel is the prettiest arranger in the world. I try and do a Johnny Mandel composition on all of my albums.' The melody is stated in a slow ballad feel, and the arrangement includes a short double time section to feature the soloists’ improvisational abilities. "
