Album Notes

He later continued work as a solo artist, prior to joining the Sax Pack (featuring Steve Cole and Kim Waters).

Great album
A friend of mind introduced me to Hulon and I have been hooked ever since. This album has a great groove on every track and the Sax playing is superb! My favorite track on the album is Dr. Goodfoot. This is a great album for music lovers and Jazz lovers alike!

Scott O'Brien Review
Dr. Hulon Crayton specializes in Rheumatology by day, and super cool sax playing by night (or anytime that feels right)… the tenor sax man is billed as “jazz music’s cool new sensation,” and his debut release FIRST IMPRESSIONS verifies this diagnosis. It’s got not only Jeff Kashiwa’s blessing, but his writing, production, and playing support on both sax and keys! The tasty tracks range from lyrical, mellow and romantic like “Follow Me” and “Cool Blue,” to old school on the project’s only cover a killer version of War’s “Cisco Kid” to festively funky as heard on “Sax on the Beach” and “Sax Machine.” The tunes on FIRST IMPRESSIONS are right in the pocket. There’s also an exciting bonus track here, a radio interview for you to get better acquainted with the man behind the music. No need for a second opinion, I’m certain that you’re going to love Hulon’s musical offerings… Bay County, Florida’s Hulon is on the fast track to Smooth Jazz stardom!


Great Jazz
This artist found me on ReverbNation and very glad he did. Sax on the Beach was the first song I heard and I new I wanted to hear more. Always been a fan of jazz and this is already one of the favorite of my collection. Has the stamp of a professionally produced studio album --highly recommended!


Great album
This album is a great for not only jazz lovers but music lovers in general. His sax playing is exceptional and every track offers something new. My favorite tracks are Dr. Goodfoot and No More Goodbyes but all of them are great. This is definitely an album I recommend.
