Product Notes

The Wolford Rosenblum Duo is a saxophone and piano duo that has been performing together for over 25 years. We are known for our eclectic and interesting programming with everything from the Baroque to Brubeck. Over the years our audiences have responded very positively to our performances of lyrical pieces like "City Called Heaven" from our first CD, "More Than Sax" and "Eli, Eli" from our second CD, "Laughter and Tears." So we have decided to release an album of some of our much-loved pieces that "sing," as well as some new ones that we are sure to become favorites! Dale Wolford has been hailed by critics nationwide for his "great sound and phrasing...the melodic lines soulfully tear at your heartstrings." (Saxophone Journal), 'fresh and expressive, with genuine impulses of feeling.' (San Francisco Chronicle) Working with pianist Ivan Rosenblum for almost 20 years, as the Wolford/Rosenblum Duo, Dale has premiered many new works including the Sonata for Saxophone & Piano by Gunther Schuller. The Duo has released two compact discs, including Laughter and Tears-A Jewish Saga on the Centaur label. Dale is also currently a member of the Premiere Saxophone Quartet, dedicated to promoting new music for the saxophone quartet via performances and recordings. He has also performed and/or recorded with Philip Glass, Bernadette Peters, Santa Cruz New Music Works, the Morosco Saxophone Quartet, the San Francisco Saxophone Quartet, the Nuclear Whales Saxophone Orchestra and is a frequent guest soloist with area orchestras and bands. He has performed in the San Francisco, San Jose Symphonies and Sun Valley orchestras. Ivan Rosenblum, pianist-composer-arranger, taught education and music at U.C.S.C. from 1970-80.
