Ray Gelato and Enric Peidro Quintet Tough Tenors revisited .

A celebration of swing with tenor sax masters Ray Gelato (U.K. ) and Enric Peidro( Spain ) . Ray and Enric salute the classic heroes of the tenor sax , paying tribute to such greats as Coleman Hawkins, Illinois Jacquet , Charlie Ventura and a whole bunch more of nearly forgotten swing to bop era Giants . Celebrating their acclaimed album ‘ With All Due Respect ‘ Gelato and Peidro have a lovely musical communication that demonstrate their differing styles and approaches to the tenor sax . Peidro smooth lines , clever phrasing and breathy Ben Webster type sound contrast so well with Gelato’s big , full sound and muscular ‘ Texas Tenor ‘ approach . Ray and Enric don’t believe in recreating the past , as their idea is to add a new , fresh take to a classic style of the tenor saxophone . Using tonal virtuosity as the core ingredient to their respective approaches .
