RUUD DE VRIES
 
This melancholic saxophone album features 20 musicians, amongst others pianist Jonn Reyna, tenor saxophonist Hans Dulfer and blues singer Deitra Farr from Chicago USA. Except for one track the album is entirely instrumental. Included are two compositions of Ruud and a composition of Hans Dulfer. The tracklist is completed with jazzclassics and Ruud's jazz interpretations of pop songs (like Wishing on a Star of Rose Royce). Every track was recorded with a different line-up, in order to produce a versatile, fresh sounding ballad album.
