It’s not uncommon for lovers of classical music to enjoy jazz – or vice versa. It’s also not unheard of for composers to fuse these genres. When that fusion is as seamless as it is in Luke Anthony’s rewarding Saxophone Concerto, the results make you forget any division exists. For soloist, Tony Woods, Anthony has penned nothing short of a contemporary classic; one which some might say bears a similarity to Michael Nyman’s saxophone concerto (in all but name), Where The Bee Dances. If you love that, you’ll thrill to what Woods and the excellent Sound Collective – under the baton of Tom Hammond - deliver in this superb recording.
