What makes Dave Shortâs Sax Therapy unique? Really, it is all about the arrangements. How often do you hear arrangements for 6 saxes and rhythm section? Almost never. The album starts out on a joyous note with Roger Hoganâs arrangement of âJoy Springâ featuring vocalist Noel Ross. The warmth of the album continues with a modern rendition of the Mancini classic âDreamsvilleâ, the smoothest tune on the album. Then is the somewhat whimsical Jeff Jones original âGus The Catâ named after Jeffâs favorite pet. The next tune, âEasy Livingâ features baritone saxophonist Kim Davis with a fabulous arrangement by Jeff Jones that includes a saxophone soli section reminiscent of the great big bands of the swing era. Noel then returns with âRaise The Roofâ, a swinging tune that starts quietly, but builds steadily to a final frenzy. The album then turns to a Latin motif with âSong For My Fatherâ followed by âShaker Songâ. The arranging talent of Jeff Jones is then quite apparent in âJeannineâ. The melody in this tune is liberally spread among all of the members in the ensemble creating a mosaic of sound (and creating a nightmare for the mixing engineer!). âBernieâs Tuneâ features solos by many of the band members, and is an example of the arranging prowess of John Gonsalves. The album ends on a quirky note, first with Noel and her somewhat psychotic âTwistedâ, and finally with Jeffâs âSphereâ, which I would characterize as a depiction of a very dysfunctional family sitting down to dinner. Fortunately poppa (Bruce Calin on bass) is able to restore some measure of order to the dining proceedings and bring the tune to an ordered conclusion!
