Mike Gibbs 85th Birthday Celebration December 2022

“Arguelles’ soloing, mainly on soprano saxophone, is always eloquent, and he demonstrated his masterly control of light and shade in his phrasing, with a lovely soft edge to the warm tone he produces. For the ballad Sweet Rain, though, he switched to tenor saxophone, and his shaping of the solo and the depth of feeling he produced were simply magnificent. A wonderful way to end this memorable concert.” John Watson
