Baritone Madness

Baritone Madness

Baritone Madness, is the debut album by baritone saxophonist Nick Brignola's Sextet featuring Pepper Adams which was recorded in late 1977 becoming the first release on the Bee Hive label.


Allmusic writer Scott Yanow states "This album lives up to its title. ... It is obvious from the song titles that this is very much a bebop jam session date, and quite a few sparks do fly.".
