O’s Notes: This is an exciting adventure for free jazz fans with Vinny playing various saxophones including the Tubax. The Tubax is a version of the contrabass saxophone with a lot of power. Listen to “The Mozart of Vice” to gain a full appreciation of its range and capability. In fact most of the selections were written to incorporate this new sound. We classify it as ‘gone but not too far gone’ meaning it is plausible listening for more structured jazz fans.
