Bob Kindred is a great tenor sax player who is consistently underrated and underexposed. Aside from some CDs released by a small audiophile label Mapleshade, it is not easy to find his leader albums in the market. Venus Records wanted to correct this situation and signed Kindred a few years ago and released this label debut album, Blue Moon.
With superb supporting musicians, Kindred plays a program of mostly standards with his distinctive, brawny and sensual tone and a sly sense of humor. This swinging and romantic collection is a must-have SACD for fans of Kindred and jazz saxophones!
