Tableaux de Provence [CD] - Ray Smith

Many know Ray Smith's reputation as a consummate jazz stylist, and in Tableaux de Provence he proves his artistry and versatility as a classical saxophone and woodwind player as well. "Ray Smith has earned his place as one of the world's outstanding woodwind artists," proclaims Eugene Rousseau, and Raymond Tuttle, in Fanfare magazine, adds, "his versatility and tonal allure are most impressive."
