Marsalis's soprano saxophone version of the aria from BB #5 has always been one of my favourite of the many, many non-vocal arrangements out there.  Now that he is on the road with his Marsalis Brasilianos tour, there will be a lot more interest in this music.

The disc also contains very pleasant music by Debussy, Faure, Ibert, Milhaud, and others.
