Bill Clinton Jam Session: The Pres Blows (1994)

EW's GRADE
C

Details Lead Performances: Bill Clinton and Vaclav Havel

So maybe the intonation on this saxist's two-song CD Bill Clinton Jam Session: The Pres Blows (with an intro by Vaclav Havel) is less than perfect. And improvising on ''Summertime,'' he goes in too many different directions. But once focused, playing ''My Funny Valentine'' (recorded live during a visit to the Czech Republic), he shows surprising creativity — especially considering he's not a pro but the Pres. However, if companies are going to start bootlegging the President, he was in better form — and better musical company — at his June, '93 White House jam. C
