Innocence Lost is a collection of saxophone ballads described as very melodic, soulful, romantic, and emotional. As stated on the album: 'Inspiration for this music came from a family tragedy in January of 2007. Project Dryden Child was created to support the victims of this tragedy. Through this fund, local communities have provided their time, efforts, and donations to make their lives better. This album is dedicated to children of abuse and those who help in one form or another to prevent child abuse.' Saxophonist Gregory Fiske spent the year following the tragedy of his niece and nephew, writing the music and gathering friends to record. The album's first song, 'Bossa Mood', is also found on track 7, played by baritone saxophonist Thom Keith. There are also second versions of songs where Greg and keyboardist Bruce Patenaude use vintage instruments, a 1913 Steinway grand piano and a 1920 Beuscher C Melody saxophone. Tracks 8 and 9 feature duets with guitarist Ron Riddle and Greg on tenor saxophone. Thanks in advance for interest in this album!
