1. Honeysuckle Rose – Father “G”
This Jazz Album features the world-famous harmonica player Max Geldray, with Dr. Roger Blomquist playing the alto saxophone. As stated on the insert, Dr. B developed this current CD by obtaining Max Geldray's previously-recorded album entitled, "World's Greatest Jazz Harmonica Player" and then dubbing himself onto each of the songs while playing his alto sax. This was a significant challenge requiring him to superimpose a counter melody line that was not meant to be there while attempting to make it sound as if it was part of the original recording. This, of course, was done extemporaneously (ad lib) so that he never knew what he would play prior to his playing it. This is one of the great ingredients of the jazz format.
Because this album represents a tribute to Max Geldray, each song is first presented as it originally was recorded without any alteration. The same song then follows with alto sax added which gives the listener a chance to better critique the result.
If you would like more information on Max Geldray (Dr. Blomquist's Father-in-law), Dr. Blomquist, and this album, you may read the CD's insert by clicking on this Insert Link. You can also read more about the life history of Max Geldray, by clicking on this web link that will take you to a site built and maintained by his fan club. Except that at this time, this link will just take you to a random "Max Geldray" page, because I just can't seem to figure out where the heck that page is that Dad showed to me so long ago.
