We gave it a B

This veteran with more than 50 albums to show for his 60 years has gained a reputation as a bopper-turned-popper, equal parts Charlie Parker and Grover Washington Jr. The alto saxist’s latest, a pleasant string-lined live album, leans toward the former. A Night With Strings’ set list includes token originals and ”Here There and Everywhere,” but the , strength lies in trusty romantic standards like ”I Thought About You,” well complemented by Sadao Watanabe’s smooth style.
