"I have been a Frank Morgan fan for about 2 years. WHen I saw "You Must Believe In Spring" while visiting my son in Ann Arbor I immediately grabbed it without really noticing that the personnel was limited to Mr. Morgan's alto sax accompanied by "only" guest piano players. But what pianists! The list includes Roland Hanna, Kenny Barron, Tommy Flanagan, Hank Jones, and Barry Harris (who I freely admit I never heard play before). Of the 12 cuts Frank Morgan plays on 7 leaving a solo piece for each pianist. I find the concept brilliant. Just the proper mix of sax to piano with a chance for each artist to be spotlighted. Each cut is a gem exhibiting great beauty, great virtuosity, and great simplicity. Each cut allowed me to get out of myself and enter a world of beauty that the best jazz creates. I would recommend this very highly to any jazz fan, but especially to the novice who may find the clear melodic nature of the music readily accessible."
Soulful and oh sooo sweet...

"The music on this disc will most certainly stand the test of time. It always seems to be a nice change of pace to have just piano and horn together. Morgan's playing is magnificent and the ensemble of pianist's doesn't get any better than this. ANYTHING by Tommy Flanagan is tasty! One can only wonder how much more great music Morgan would have made had he not been dealing with the law."
We all must believe in spring

"Wonderfully soft and melodious. This album falls into the catagory of easy listening, without being an elevator music. There is a sweetness to Frank Morgan's music that makes it approachable even by non-jazz lovers."
