Song of Solomon
From the song titles, you can guess that the music is easily listening
much like that of John Tesh, Kenny G, or David Sanborn. The quality
is excellent. He has some great musicians playing with him, although
the only name I recognized is Greg Sparks on acoustic guitar and bass.
This is the perfect album to listen to with your spouse, snuggled up in
front of the fire on a cold winter night. -----Shari Lloyd
Kim Costanza's purpose for this album is ambitious. He wants to educate Christian listeners about the joys of marital sensuality, as celebrated in the twenty-second book of the Bible. Using a mixture of original compositions and romantic standards, his lite jazz instrumental stylings will probably find more acceptance in Christian bookstores than another recent attempt on the same subject by the Vigilantes of Love. This makes Costanza's offering useful on a number of levels, but if your standard for great saxophone jazz is Coltrane and Parker, stay away. Still, if you'd like some background music for a quiet, romantic evening at home, once the kids are in bed, Kim Costanza is your man. -----Linda Stonehocker
