ALBUM REVIEW           :        UPFRONT

ARTIST                         :        DAVID SANBORN

GENRE                           :        JAZZ / INSTRUMENTAL

DATE OF RELEASED    :        1992

This record is probably the most upbeat this legendary jazz musician has ever produced.  Twenty three years after it was released, the whole album is still not difficult to listen.  Probably the reason is that this album has certain joy of life character imprinted in each of the song.  You can tell that this record is one of a kind in his entire catalogue as even slow jazz music in this album, reflect a certain kind of happiness.

The most that you can describe in this record is through the jazz piece “Bang Bang.”  You can dance, you can sway, you can sip a glass of wine while listening, you can tap your fingers, you can even hum, or just plain stare at the horizon while the music is in the background.  This is the whole ambience of the record to provide music in whatever that you want to do.

You cannot ask for more when it comes to ultimate jazz record, this one is definitely a must.  I rate this record 4.50 stars out of 5 stars.
