Dinner Music By Saxophonist Mark Maxwell

The right dinner music is a must for fine dining, cocktails, elegant gatherings. It should create a relaxed and warm ambiance -the perfect mood for you and your guests. Often, you’ll want something that’s mellow but not too mellow, romantic without being too dramatic, something sophisticated and supportive to good conversation.

Our dining music is that “just right” combination of relaxation and sophistictication, jazz and smooth jazz music, mellow instrumental versions of songs you’ll know, mixed with our smooth and relaxed originals.

More Thoughts About Dining Music

As we all know, music is energy and the language of emotions and feelings. So, when you introduce music into your environment, what you’re really doing is introducing energy. That energy can easily and powerfully influence the ambiance of that setting.

The question then becomes: what energetic influences do you want your gathering to be effected by? What songs and themes and sounds and instruments and timbres and rhythms will best reflect the mood you want to create?

As a saxophonist, I know that saxophone music that is smooth, soft, romantic, and easy listening is often just right for dinner music. The sound of the saxophone is, in and of itself, soothing and sophisticated. Its supportive to good conversation. It calms the soul and soothes the heart. It makes people feel good. Hearing it promotes a feeling that all is well in the world.

Sax music goes well with wine and good food. It compliments any environment that includes candles, good conversation, fine dining, good friends, elegant settings, and beautiful feelings. The saxophone, if played just right, promotes those feelings and evokes that ambiance.

Of course, that feeling and that ambiance is all about love and healing and the uplifting of the spirit.

So, while you might think that all you’re doing is choosing the right dinner music, really, what you’re doing is helping to spread energy into the world.

Finally, as a saxophonist, I’ve heard countless hundreds and thousands of people tell me how perfect sax music is for dining music. I’ve come to believe that the saxophone aids digestion.

You can see why its important to consider your dinner music carefully.

Enjoy!
