Amazing Album

Fred Lipsius is an amazing composer, saxophonist, and pianist. I have had the pleasure of learning from Fred at Berklee and he was gracious enough to give me a copy of this CD as well as his other solo album "Better Believe It", which is a funk album, reminiscant of his days in Blood, Sweat, and Tears, where he won won numerous Grammys and played all over the world. This entire album is full of straight up combo jazz and ballads, including the virtuoso "Somethin' for R.J" which was done in one take, much like the rest of the album. This album is worth the low cost that it's given. Actually, this album is worth much more than it's given price, and that of the inflated priced pop albums that you see today. Take it from someone who has dealt with this amazing musician on a personal level, Lipsius knows his stuff, and the listener can feel every ounce of emotion that this man pours into his music. I also recommend Fred's other album "Better Believe It" and his albums with BS&T, especially BST4 and Child Is Father to the Man. Buy this album!!
