Details:    Saxophonist Harvey Pittel celebrates his retirement after 33 years as Professor of Saxophone at The Butler School of Music with "Songs For Mom", an homage to his late mother Dorothy Pittel, featuring music of the American Songbook that she sang and heard, in special arrangements for saxophone, piano, cello and trumpet.
