Scott Robinson has managed to bring the C-melody saxophone, that odd instrument of the 1920s, blazingly back to life in a typically original fashion. We have organ trios, a string quartet, trios with acoustic guitar and either bass or bass marimba, quartets with electric guitar, quintets which add a trumpet, and a series of duets with piano. Add to that the program, which ranges from Saint-Sans to Ellington to Beiderbecke to Scott Robinson, and you can see that you're in for a hell of a ride. There is an element of music coming down from the sky and being transmitted through Scott that has tangible spiritual qualities. Music flows right out of him; here he has channeled it through the C-melody saxophone. From the album notes by Loren Schoenberg, jazz historian, writer, tenor saxophonist and big band leader.

"Scott Robinson plays a vintage C-melody sax like nobody else, past or present" Nat Hentoff, Wall Street Journal, August 4, 2000
