Reverie, Interrupted

Reverie, Interrupted for tenor saxophone and piano is featured on Parma Recording’s album Sculpting the Air: Modern Works for Wind Instruments, with Jordan P. Smith, tenor saxophone, and James Adler, piano.

Adler’s piece is reminiscent of Barber; it is well written for both saxophone and piano. — Paul Turok, Turok’s Choice, August 4, 2011.
Adler’s style here offers lyricism with edge — Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill
This is a very nice jazz- inflected work that meanders in and out of the lyrical and the buoyant; all supported by a very neat noir-like piano part. — Daniel Coombs, Audiophile Audition
