Album Notes
Following Desmond's final performance at the Monterrey Jazz Festival in 1976, Seaside Post reporter Robert Miskimon wrote, "Desmond has achieved what every serious artist strives for, total authenticity and purity."

Baron von Remmel has produced an tribute to Paul Desmond called "Alone Together."
Baron's purity brings to life the regal authenticity of one of Jazz History's brightest stars, the late Mr. Paul Desmond.

Baron von Remmel has the distinction of being Lake Tahoe's very own Jazz Saxophonist, with a golden alto sound reminiscent of the late Paul Desmond, of Dave Brubeck's group.
As a 27 year resident of the west shore of Lake Tahoe, CA., he is a familiar figure, not only as a performer, but also as a jazz educator, in the music classroom of North Tahoe High School, and as a private instructor.

He studied music at highly acclaimed North Texas State University and received a Bachelor of Music degree with a major in Jazz Education. Baron plays alto, soprano, tenor and baritone saxophones. He has appeared in showrooms, lounges and nightclubs, from Lake Tahoe and Reno, all the way down to Las Vegas, performing, not only as a musician, but also as a music director and show producer.

Baron von Remmel has peformed with his jazz groups at the West Shore Cafe, in Homewood, CA., for 18 years, and also performs regularly at Sunnyside Resort, near Tahoe City, Moody's Bistro, in Truckee, CA., the Sienna Hotel Casino, in Reno, the Timberline Lounge Sunday Jazz Brunches in Reno, and at Northstar at Tahoe, near Truckee, CA.

He has performed with Abbe Lane, Billy Preston, The Coasters, Larry Collins, Zella Lehr, Surprise Package, Liazon, Rubber Biscuit, The Drifters, The Temptations, Melissa Spangler/Las Vegas, Little Anthony & the Imperials, BJ Thomas, Harry Blackstone, Wayne Newton, Tommy Tutone and the Atlanta Rhythm Section.

Baron also performed with the orchestra at the 1996 Miss Universe Pageant in Las Vegas, the 1983 Bob Hope Desert Classic in Palm Springs, and was a member of the Reno Eldorado Casino's orchestra for the Grammy Award winning Broadway Musical "SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE." He was the music arranger, assistant Music Director and featured soloist for the Reno Hilton's musical swing revue production of "WORK THAT SKIRT" and "ESCAPE."

Baron von Remmel has opened concerts for such artists as Bill Cosby and The Yellowjackets, and performs many styles of music from classic jazz artists such as Paul Desmond, Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan and Duke Ellington, to smooth jazz artists such as David Sanborn, Kenny G, Grover Washington, Jr, Spyro Gyra and Richard Elliot.

He is currently Producer, Director and co-star in an original Musical Comedy called "NEVADA'S STORY."

Very enjoyable and FIRST RATE!!
Baron's sound, ensemble playing and
impeccable intonation makes the project very enjoyable
to listen to. He has assembled a fine rhythm
section, the choice of compositions is very tasteful
and the entire project is first rate.
I'm so glad that he has continued keeping the University of North Texas jazz
tradition alive.
I am very proud of him.

Absolutely Wonderful
This is a very enjoyable CD. While I do not think there are any weak tracks on this CD, for me "Bossa Antigua", "Alone Together" and "The Nearness Of You" are particulary good.

Remmel is here, as usual, outstanding!

Brian Rogoff

Exceptional tribute to the most lyrical of altoists
I'm a Paul Desmond completist, I have practically everything
that's available on CD from Desmond, with Brubeck, and as a

This CD really stands out from the other tributes. Von Remmel doesn't attempt to copy Desmond's style, the tribute
is in his own voice, but it's clear that he was heavily
influenced by Desmond, and I think that any Desmond fan
would love to add this one to his collection.

The song selection is execllent, there's not a dud on the
album. Bossa Antigua and Desafinado are standouts, and I
like his version of Take Five as well. I'm looking forward to von Remmel's next album.

Hal Strack

This CD is a laudatory musical breath of fresh air.
As a life long friend of Paul Desmond, I listened to this tribute to him with great interest. The CD reflects an accomplished group led by saxophonist Remmel, playing with taste and fealty a selection of songs of a genre in keeping with Paul's repertoire and syle. Paul would look upon this most refreshing tribute with favor and pride.

Bill Danton

Great jazz album
I grew up loving Desmond and have spent many years missing his music. This album was exactly what I hoped it would be: A resurection of great jazz with enough originality that it never comes across as stale. Baron von Remmel is a VERY talented muscian!

Frosty Plunkett

If you like Jazz, you're gonna love this CD. Have known Remmel for over 30 years. This is his "BEST" Work!!!

J. R. Covington

Stunningly 'Old School'.... smooth.... very classy !!!!!
Superb choice of songs. Others have merely copied Desmonds style and thus created tributes, but none have captured the gradations of feeling. This CD is a rich artistic performance, full of nuance.
For those who have had the pleasure of having heard Paul Desmond live with Brubeck, this CD will bring a sincere smile and an agreeing nod. Remmel, my hat is off to you.
