Album Notes
The music on Tenorness -- Andy Sugg's seventh album as leader -- blends R&B, New Orleans, Afro-fusion and Arcangelo Corelli, all filtered through the lens of contemporary jazz. Andy has assembled a team of New York's and Australia's finest jazz musicians to perform his diverse and highly original compositions. In both established and (hopefully) unauthorised ways this album celebrates the power of the tenor saxophone.
If the beginnings of the saxophone weren't all that promising, it didn't take long for Adolphe Sax's favourite invention to claim an honoured place in the soundscape of the modern world. Maybe if Baudelaire had waited a bit longer to write The Painter of Modern Life, he might have written about the saxophone instead (The Instrument of Modern Life?), because Adolphe's quirky creation went on to voice the experience of modern life better than just about any other. Then, when his great 19th century creation teamed up with the great stylistic invention of the 20th century, jazz, its ascendancy was set in stone; with the tenor saxophone providing the richest, most rousing sound of all. Feeding off and revelling in this happy accomplishment, here is an ode to Tenorness.
