French Sax - Franck Pourcel

French Sax
The Golden Alto of Jo Krasko with Franck Pourcel's Parisian Strings
Capitol Records T10126

Excellent thematic mood set.

From the back cover: Jo Krasko, however, is just beginning his rise to prominence. He was first heard as a soloist, playing his golden alto saxophone, in Capitol's memorable (and still popular) La Femme album. La Femme's music was composed in Hollywood by Les Baxter, then sent by the imaginative Baxter to Paris, where Pourcel arranged and recorded the music with Krasko as alto sax soloist. His skill, his enviable technique and his ability to translate various emotions to records was immediately apparent.

And so, the Krasko saxophone with the musical Pourcel strings in La Femme led to this sequel, French Sax.
