Sax In Silk - Bobby Dukoff

Sax In Silk
Bobby Dukoff
His Tenor Sax And Orchestra
With The Ray Charles Chorus
RCA Camden CAS-2173 (e)
Selections in this album were formerly included in "Sax In Silk" (LPM-1040) and "Sax In Satin" (LPM-1167)

From the back cover: "The Sound Is Jazz - The Mood Is Tranquil - The Style Is Refreshing."

The sound is dated for a late 60s re-release, especially marketed at that time, as a "jazz" set.

From Billboard - November 13, 1954 (original release): Here is a listenable album of mood music that should have its strongest appeal to the older jazz-based crowd. For Dukoff is a jazz tenor man, who has played for some of the top works in the land. And the tunes, a wonderful collection, are also from the 1930s in the main. It is sensuous music, smoothly arranged. A sumptuous mood set that will please many.

From the back cover: Bobby Dukoff is a unique talent. He is essentially a brilliant jazz musician who has played in the big bands of Jimmy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Charlie Spivak, Carl Hoff, as well as many others. He has also used his creative imagination in the field of audio engineering. In one of his experiments with multiple recording techniques, he decided to record himself paying six saxophone parts. This experiment disc so impressed RCA Victor that they offered him a recording contract. On this record Bobby doesn't play all six parts himself. In various selections he is accompanied by such outstanding jazz stars as Mundell Lowe, guitar; Don Lamond and Jimmy Crawford, drum; Trigger Alpert, bass; Dick Hyman, piano and Hymie Shorter, lead sax.
