“DANIEL SMITH/Jazz Suite for Bassoon:  If the opening notes of Smith’s interpretation of Vivaldi don’t completely charm you, either go get your ears cleaned out or stop reading reviews of music meant for real grown ups.  The cat that single handedly invented the jazz bassoon genre fearlessly takes his chops to the next level of the game by tackling classics and Scott Joplin and playing it in ways you’ve never heard before.  Well known in tight circles, this is classy classical music that certainly needs to be unleashed on the world at large.  A killer soloist, it shouldn’t be that only novelists can bloom in obscurity as the world really needs more of this.  Killer stuff throughout.”

-CHRIS SPECTOR, Editor and Publisher MIDWEST RECORD
