February 2018: Yodeling Goodbye, the first full-length album, is ready for release; advance versions are being circulated now. The songs were selected from the larger Yodeling Goodbye project (the five most recent 4-song CDs), and then re-edited, remastered, and sequenced to bring out the concept. "I'd really thought that albums were over, and that music was being experienced mainly as individual disconnected songs," says Norman, "but it seems the pendulum is swinging back and albums as a conceptual format still have some validity with listeners, which is great -- artists can feel comfortable working with larger thematic ideas. This probably accounts for the renewed interest in vinyl." l


Norman Salant is a songwriter, singer, saxophonist, composer and martini-maker based in New York City. Recently he's focused primarily on songwriting, guitaring, and singing, with all their euphorias and discontents, while the saxophone part of the equation has been largely on hiatus, barring a few drop-ins on some of the song recordings and the annual September Drum Day celebration in Harlem. The martini-making sometimes rears its happy head at sporadic Salon parties in a NoChe loft, but "formal" performances remain rare. Over the years, he has built up a large catalog of songs; only about 30 have been recorded so far.

As for a full-fledged return to the public arena -- well, one can dream. Some of the earlier saxophone/compositional work has been archived: four CDs have been released so far, and there are still at least two more to come, mainly containing the later live saxophone work with the Moving Planet Orchestra and the Saxophone Stories series of solo improvisations.
