A Fascinating Session
01/17/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the 4th CD from Progressive (that I know of) that issues an entire jazz recording session from the World War II years, including false starts, breakdowns, and alternate takes. Bobby seems to have been having trouble with his embouchure this day, and he hits a lot of clams, but the complete takes, though not perfect, are at least acceptable. The high rating is for two things: the window this CD provides into the nuts and bolts of a 1943 recording session, and Bobby's lovely further reflections on George Gershwin's "Embraceable You", a song Bobby had recorded 5 years earlier, to stunning effect."
