Early responses to 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

May 2018: Yodeling Goodbye, the first full-length album, was released in May. The songs were selected from the larger Yodeling Goodbye project (five 4-song EPs), then re-edited, remastered, and sequenced to realize 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, while the saxophone part of the equation has largely 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 can occasionally rear its happy head at performance-enhanced  Salon parties, but formal venue shows remain 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.

As for a full-fledged return to the public arena -- well, one can dream. Meanwhile, some of the earlier saxophone/compositional work has been archived on four CD releases; there are still at least two more to come, mainly consisting of the later hard core saxophone work with the Moving Planet Orchestra and the Saxophone Stories series of solo improvisations.
