If you like the alto sax, Thomas Faist's the man for you. It's hard, no impossible to believe this guy isn’t better known in the jazz community yet, although one knows it's only a matter of time. ME-WE is in my humble opinion his finest offering yet, a wonderful blend of Modern and Mainstream that has you drifting off into a dream one minute and tapping your feet the next. Influences such as Charlie Parker, Grover Washington Jr. and David Sanborn are apparent, but who haven’t those guys influenced? All in all a great album which has left me eagerly anticipating his next offering.“Faist presents modern-mainstream originals on a high level with a wonderful balanced and tasteful interacting quintet … the mood is set for ballads underlined through Faist’s softly fluent and discreet articulating alto-sound … overall an elegant and absolute piece of timeless music.”Jazz thing, June 2008Thomas Faist - saxophone und composition – was born 1957 in Munich, Germany.
