Anton Schwartz: Flash Mob

Read "Flash Mob" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Anton Schwartz: The Slow Lane

Read "The Slow Lane" reviewed by Jim Santella

With a rich, brawny tenor saxophone tone, Anton Schwartz leads this quartet through a program of slow ballads and medium-tempo fare. His warm saxophone sound captivates the heart and lets you forget the harsh realities. Music for a rainy day? Could be.
