Universal Language is an album by the American jazz saxophonist Joe Lovano recorded in 1992 and released on the Blue Note label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 4½ stars stating "Universal Language is one of Joe Lovano's most ambitious and successful albums, an attempt to prove the cliché that music is indeed the universal language... It's an unabashedly adventurous and risky project, and it works frighteningly well".[2]
