This is a truly impressive track. Charles Evans puts the baritone sax through its paces, drawing out an incredible range of sounds. Evans does play some traditional, bassline-oriented parts, but you'll also be amazed at his extended technique. While you will hear a few squeaks and grunts, the payoff comes with the bombast of shrieking upper register runs, split chords, droning pedal tones, and some truly frightening, almost animalistic sounds. Not for the faint of heart (or the impatient).
