"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

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

Norman Salant is a songwriter, singer, saxophonist, composer, producer, avant-gardist, psychedelicist and martini-maker based in New York City. For a while now, he's been focused on songwriting, guitaring, and singing, with all their euphorias and discontents, while the saxophone part of the equation has for the most part been on hiatus, barring a few drop-ins on some of the Yodeling Goodbye recordings and the annual September Drum Day celebration in Harlem. The martini-making sometimes rears its happy head at sporadic performance-enhanced  Salon parties, while venue performances remain rare. Over the years, he has built up a large catalog of songs; exactly 32 have been recorded so far with only 8 seeing an official album release.

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 Some of the earlier saxophone/compositional work has been archived: four CDs have been released so far, and there are still at least two more to come, mainly containing the later live saxophone work with the Moving Planet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.
