John Doyle very kindly sent me his copy of Saxlife plays Yes – Total Sax Retain which is the brainchild of saxophonist, Jamison Smeltz. So this week I got to listen carefully to Yes classics arranged for saxophone quartet.
There is also a review from Mark Anthony K of Heaven and Earth.
- How does Yes music sound when arranged for saxophone quartet?
- How were the tracks put together?
- Is this a good ‘tribute’ album?
Listen to the episode and then let me know what you think!

Very cool show as always just totally enjoy all the different aspects of the worlds greatest band!
I wonder how many bands in this day and age can have the endurance and timelessness of Yes?
It’s a great collection – thanks for the comment!
If you want to hear some different sax take a listen to “Raid” by Audience http://youtu.be/Q6DNBkl9dGA
