Michael Torke has always written music that contrives to be both accessible and smart at the same time… At his best, Torke manages to capture a feeling of glowing euphony and an effortless quality that is rare in new music today. If the highlights of this disc are Telephone Book and July, a great deal of credit is due to the performances which are superb. It is hard to imagine a more expressive and beautifully timed rendition of July than the one given by the Apollo Saxophone Quartet, whose approach manages to combine considerable refinement of tonal blending with the spontaneity almost of a live performance.
