10. If you don't own this, you just don't like jazz. It isn't the mellow sound of his later Touch. It has more in common with John Coltrane. The Quad effect is good, though limited by the QS matrix. There is no Q8 of this. He blows incredibly. YOU NEED IT!

Klemmer was certainly an acolyte of Trane's in his early years with Cadet Concept and Impulse! But even then, he had smarmier tendencies that begin to surface here, and go full blown in TOUCH, his only major pop crossover album. Still, I'd take TOUCH over anything Kenny G. has ever perpetrated, and indeed, as my wife had always felt it to be a romantic album (and she has little to no interest in jazz), I'm inclined not to knock it too much....;)

Touch is Klemmer's best album. As usual, I picked it up as a new release. I was expecting something more rousing, but I loved it instantly. It is passionate, but mellow. Bound to make any woman purr. All the Klemmer Quads are Coltraneish. Magic & Movement, the last Quad, is my least fave, though far from bad. 1989's Music is the only bad album he ever did, IMHO.
