Gary Smulyan has arrived at the summit of baritone saxophone playing. His rich sound, fluid phrasing, virtuosity, and ebullient personality are instantly recognizable. Following-up on his recent highly acclaimed Reservoir outing "Hidden Treasures" (RES 185), he is off again in search of "More Treasures" from the vast jazz repertoire. In the company of pianist Mike LeDonne, bassist Dennis Irwin, and drummer Steve Johns, Smulyan explores a full spectrum of harmonies and tempos from the pens of Hank Mobley, Horace Silver, Chick Corea, Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins, Tadd Dameron, Sal Nistico and Gigi Gryce. It's hard to beat these 62 minutes of hard swinging jazz improvisation as a source of pure inspiration for great listening pleasure.
