""Exectutive Suite" is a reminder of what a fine group the LA 4 was. Reedman Bud Shank, guitarist Laurindo Almeida, bassist Ray Brown, and drummer Jeff Hamilton, outstanding musicians all, played together so seamlessly they are like the inner workings of a fine watch. "Executive Suite" is also a reminder of what a great musician Bud Shank is and I do mean great! Listen to him on the discs first and second cuts, Hamilton's "Blues Wellington" and Almeida's "Amazonia." The former starts soft and lovely with Almeida's acoustic guitar; then Shank enters, his growling sax bursting into a passionate solo. His flute work on "Amazonia" is both beautiful and forceful. This CD is well worth owning as are all of the LA 4 releases."
