Al Cohn first sprung on the national scene as one of the saxophonists on the Woody Herman hit "Four Brothers," a crazy arrangement of "Jeepers Creepers" featuring each "brother" on a wild-and-crazy swingin' saxophone solo. Along with fellow "brother" Zoot Sims, Cohn became one of New York's leading sax men, forming with Sims in a quintet that played in the hot beatnik jazz scene of the day, even backing up Jack Kerouac on a few poetry recordings.

Cohn on the Saxophone finds our man Cohn taking the lead on a series of great jazz standards. Al's sax voice on this session is smooth, lyrical; almost like he's talking to you or telling a story. Dig his smooth, supple playing on "We Three," or the gorgeously blue-toned notes he hits on "Singing The Blues" -- Cohn is very much a man at home with his instrument, and the band lays back and lets him spin his tales.

When Cohn on the Saxophone was originally issued in 1956, Downbeat magazine gave it the prestigious and rare five-star rating -- and over 60 years down the pike it still sounds as vital and delicious as it did when it was released. This lost jazz classic is finally yours to enjoy again, pressed onto colored vinyl, and neatly slid into a beautifully restored package. Only on Modern Harmonic!
