Review: Saxophonist Wilensky’s latest release is his examination of music for music's sake, his unpretentious "serving the music" recording. Seven of the eleven tunes are chordless trio affairs. A guest guitarist is added on four tracks, including the final one, which also features an accordion. Good Music is a remarkably cohesive set, in spite of its disparate compositional sources, to go along with five strong Wilensky originals. Credit Wilensky's focused musical personality and vision.
