Always All Around You -- New album coming December 8 

Always All Around You is the follow-up to the acclaimed Yodeling Goodbye album, from the renowned former avant-pop saxophonist and best songwriter you never heard of. Put your headphones on, turn it up, and dive into an extraordinary sonic experience, an amusement park of sounds and styles, with lyrics ranging from absurdism to Americana to the end of the world. The album goes on sale December 8.

Two New Saxophone Archive Releases -- Late Night In The Loft in December, Sax/On in January

Some of the earlier archival saxophone/compositional work has already been issued on four CDs. The next pair of CDs we consider to be the real gems of the archives, as they focus on some extremely rare freewheeling live saxophone performances. First, in December, will be Late Night In The Loft, a live trio performance in San Francisco from 1983. It will be followed in January by the long-awaited Sax/On, which contains the amazing later saxophone work with the Moving Planet Orchestra and two installments from the Saxophone Stories series of solo improvisations, all recorded in New York in the early 1990s.

Praise for YODELING GOODBYE:

"An honest effort; it's relatable, it's ugly, it's beautiful, it's light-hearted, it's heavy, it's soulful, and it's reflective. Dreamy musings, and polished harmonies instill a sense of awe. I'd recommend this album to anyone looking for a deep listen." -- Bill Todde, Divide and Conquer Music; awarded Top Album, May 2018

"The arrangements are beautiful, and beautifully played. The opening song "Home" is gorgeous." -- Robert Katz, Christopher Street Coffeehouse

"Every single melody is absolutely beautiful. The stories are so personal. The production is entirely everything it could be. In "Home," the intonation alone hooks some deeper part of me that doesn't want to let go. The beautiful surrender in "All Gone Forward" haunts me long after I've listened." -- Eric Wood, songwriter, musician

Feature interview about Yodeling Goodbye in Divide and Conquer Music Magazine --  READ IT HERE

* * * * * *

Yodeling Goodbye, the first full-length album, was released in May 2018. The songs were selected from the larger Yodeling Goodbye project (five 4-song EPs), then re-edited, remastered, and sequenced to create the concept. "I'd really thought that albums were over, and that music was being experienced mainly as individual disconnected songs, but happily I was very wrong. The album concept is alive and well, and it's great that artists can work with larger thematic ideas, and it probably accounts for the renewed interest in vinyl too." 



Norman Salant is a songwriter, singer, saxophonist, composer, producer, avant-gardist, psychedelicist and sometime martini-maker based in New York City. For quite a while now, he's been more focused on songwriting, guitaring, and singing, with all their euphorias and discontents, with the saxophone part of the equation largely on hiatus barring a few cameos on some of the Yodeling Goodbye recordings and the annual September Drum Day celebration in Harlem. The martini-making might still occasionally rear its happy head at performance-enhanced Salon parties, but formal venue shows have been rare. Over the years he's built up a large catalog of songs; only 32 have been recorded so far including the eight on Yodeling Goodbye and 10 more on Always All Around You. At the same time, the earlier saxophone work is being archived and released; four CDs are already out, and two more are planned for between now and January. As for a full-fledged return to the public arena -- well, one can dream.
