ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Saxophonist Glenn Shambroom, member of the Boston R & B band The Love Dogs, attempts to earn dozens of dollars on this debut CD.

The eight originals, plus an arrangement of "You Don't Know What Love Is", exploit the entire sax family (sopranino, soprano, alto, tenor, baritone, and bass!), and range from hard bop to rhythm and blues.

Appearing on the CD are some of Boston's finest players: Billy Novick, Myanna, Paul Ahlstrand, Scott Shetler, Larry Carsman, Tom West, Jesse Williams, John Connelly, and Ed Scheer.

Check out Glenn's new cd (2006) BAND MATH, also available on cdbaby.

BLUES REVUE MAGAZINE- April 2001 (Maureen Delgrosso):"...an impressive collection of nine energetic sax instrumentals that lean more toward jazz stylings than blues. Shambroom, a gifted, imaginative and mature artist, wrote and arranged all but one of the cuts, crafting harmonically complex ensemble pieces...Shambroom has done his homework in the post-swing bebop era. This is an authentic and beautifully crafted project. It's a must for sax fans and for those who appreciate good music."

CADENCE MAGAZINE (www.cadencebuilding.com)- October 2004 (Jack Bowers) "...essentially Jazz-centered straight-ahead session led by composer/arranger/saxophonist Glenn Shambroom whose groovy charts...leave ample blowing space for him and his friends...the music imparts an ambiance that is as much contemporary as traditional ... Shambroom's colleagues ...are first rate improvisers...
and each one reinforces the leader's game plan. Shambroom, who reminds me of such swing-centered players as (Vince) Giordano and Scott Robinson, stays with the baritone most of the way, but plays the seldom heard sopranino on 'Wistful Thinking' and bass sax on the standard 'You Don't Know What Love Is'. Shambroom wrote and arranged everything else... the album is snappy from start to finish."

Toe tapper par excellence
Shambroom's solo effort swings effortlessly.

If music is the soundtrack of our lives, these selections are perfect for the scenes where you're cruising the Interstate after dark, or slouching down a sidestreet.

'Snappy' almost makes me forget that Glenn is a great guitarist, too. See ya at the fourteen stand, man.
