The second album of Norie Sano, a saxophone player active in the Arion Saxophone Quartet and Nagoya Academic Winds.

Although it is a light-themed album, the shadows associated with the light are well expressed.

It is a very expressive performance, with a smile that makes you happy, a tear that makes you cry, and a forward look.

Perhaps it is logically considered as an approach to music, but the performance is emotional and will soon be attracted to Norie's world.

You can feel various emotional expressions in the album, and it is one that is full of humanity and a polite approach to study.

This CD is recommended not only for core saxophone fans, but also for those who have just started playing saxophone.
