AllMusic Review by

This installment of the Romantic Saxophone series begins with a breathy take on the easy listening favorite "Un-Break My Heart," featuring an alto sax trading licks with a classical guitar. Unfortunately, there's not much else to rave about, as the collection veers into the unspeakably bland for most of its 12 tracks. While the saxophone is featured prominently throughout, too often the arrangements are padded with unnecessary keyboards or, in the case of "Santa Comba," Esquivel-style backing vocals. While a Latin-flavored "Dark Eyes" does include a sultry, reverb-drenched lead, it's not enough to save this otherwise weak collection of faux-romantic instrumentals.
