STRING ALONG

I will keep it short. Tenor saxophonist Steve Cole's new disc “Moonlight” (artistry music) is just as good as “Charlie Parker with Strings” and "Charles McPherson with Strings a Tribute to Charlie Parker". Some be bop savvy folks may consider that statement laughable because  Cole is a smooth jazz figure. Who cares what branch of jazz he favors? The man has an elegant set of chops and they blend nicely with the Millennium Chamber Players of Chicago. “Moonlight” is an attractive recording and Cole spruces up some familiar goodies such as “Cry Me a River” and “The Look of Love”.
