Tenor saxophonist JD Allen had only one goal in mind - to play "pretty" - when he set out to record an album consisting entirely of ballads. He put the brainier aspects of his craft to the side and opted to feed his emotional core, focusing on melody and tone while making a personal expression of empathy for the human race. Allen also took off his composer hat for this project: He draws from a repertoire of classic siren songs (including "Stranger in Paradise," "Until the Real Thing Comes Along," "Why Was I Born," "Come All Ye Fair and Tender Ladies," "Put on a Happy Face," "Gone With the Wind" and others) in a nine-track program that's presented as a love letter to the listener. - DownBeat Magazine Editors' Pick
