Videoarts Music 25th Anniversary
Limited-Edition Reissue Series!

Swing Journal Gold Disc!

To celebrate its 25th anniversay, Japan's Videoarts Music label re-released its hit jazz CDs as an attractively priced, limited edition "Hear The Music" series.

Tenor Legacy, recorded in 1996, was a very special project that became possible thanks to the idea of a Japanese producer and backing of a Japanese label. They put the legendary tenor saxophonist Benny Golson into a studio with Branford Marsalis, James Carter and Harold Ashby, three great tenorists of a younger generation.

The special septet with four tenors played jazz standards that are strongly associated with tenor legends such as Lestor Young ("Lester Leaps In"), Ben Webster ("Body & Soul"), Sonny Rollins ("St. Thomas") and John Coltrane ("My Favorite Things"). Backed by a superb rhythm section of pianist Geoff Keezer, bassist Dwayne Burno and drummer Joe Farnsworth, the three tenor saxophonists trade fiery solos. An excellent idea, well executed. This is a very hot, memorable album!

Produced by Makoto Kimata, Carl Allen & Vincent Herring. Recorded January 29 & 30, 1996, New York.
