New York Saxophone Quartet – Sensitivity
Fans of The Free Design’s songwriting might enjoy these early (mid 60s) Chris Dedrick compositions for saxophone quartet. His uncle Rusty Dedrick has a few cuts on it as well. The rich harmonies and chords that later shaped the Free Design vocal arrangements are here fully formed yet more angular in nature. There’s no date on the cover or record but it seems to pre-date other sax quartets like Rova. It kind of reminds me of David Amram’s music for Pull My Daisy.
