Aaron Lington–Secondary Impressions

Contemporary transcriptions or originals for bass saxophone and piano. Very nice!

The Pythiad–Jim Gailloreto’s Jazz String Quintet

Vocal works with string quintet, more classical than jazz, hence released under Origin’s Classical branch. Nice pieces, especially Jaco Pastorius.
