Don Diego: This Must Be Heaven

By

Sign in to view read count


Saxophonist Don Diego joins the ranks of competent saxophonists plying the contemporary smooth jazz/R&B trade. His latest release,This Must Be Heaven, will sit comfortably alongside the works of Kirk Whalum and Gerald Albright (both of whom make guest appearances), Art Porter and George Howard (both of whom are feted in the acknowledgements), and Grover Washington, Jr. (to whom tribute is paid on the selection "Mr. Magic... A Tribute").



It's hard to find fault with anything here; it's all professionally done and pleasant enough to listen to. But it's also hard to find anything particularly unique or memorable about it. Mr. Diego certainly has the talent - hopefully on future releases a more identifiable musical personality will emerge.


Title: This Must Be Heaven | Year Released: 1999 | Record Label: Ichiban
