However, sometimes something comes across your desk that immediately triggers your interest. Personally, for me that was the Sasha Soundlab by AudioRaiders.

Considered one of the finest avant-garde saxophonist in his early years, McMurray has shown a special talent for genre-crossing. He has worked  with a diverse range of artists, including Bob James, KEM, Don Was (Was Not Was), Bonnie Raitt, Albert King, BB King, Geri Allen, Herbie Hancock, Bootsy Collins, and The Rolling Stones.
