TOMMY SMITH

AKD103

TOMMY SMITH ~ tenor & soprano saxophones
MURRAY McLACHLAN ~ piano

For this Tommy Smith classical album the saxophonist, with his established partner and collaborator Murray McLachlan - one of Scotland's most respected classical pianists - has built a programme out of two types of music.   The first is a series of arrangements of small-scale pieces, mostly piano originals along with one song (Je te veux), and all with wide-ranging styles and flavours.   The second features a pair of large-scale original compositions, both sonatas for tenor sax and piano, each of them demonstrating Smith's versatility in his continuing development as a composer of more formal, as well as improvisatory, music.
