"I happen to love gene harris, jeff hamilton, and ray brown, and I own many of their CD's. you should by this album if:
-you like a live recording with the audience really in to it
-you want to here the best versions of the songs played
-you like straight ahead jazz
-you want to here ray brown's own songs...
'Buhaina Buhaina' and 'The Real Blues'
-you want to here the best drummer at his finest
-you want to here the best bassist at his finest
-you like gene harris
-you dont like CD's with just one good song (this has many)And now for my song ratings:
1. Summer Wind- this song has alot of energy and an amzing
ending with a great bass solo also...a beautiful song
2. The Real Blues- features Ray in a 24 bar blues than
switching to gene in the 12 bar as they play the hit
section, the coolest song ever written
3. Lil Darlin- beautiful song at slow tempo, energy builds
into wonderful solos buy gene, ray
4. It Dont Mean A Thing- features the drummer in an all new
interpretation of the song
5. Mona Lisa- ray plays meledy at a relaxed tempo
6. Buhaina Buhaina- written by Ray himself, has alot of
7. Cant Help Lovin Dat Man- features gene harris in a
beautiful ballad, the band starts swinging as gene builds
up the song and they reach an amazing level of harmony
and and energy until the spectacular ending
8. Bluesolgy- standard blues, fittingly ends the set"

"Yes, it's that good. Nuff said.
But it's also now available as a hybrid SACD for those who want the "improved" format. I bought the original and love it but wish I had known about the SACD version. Pays your money and choose your own poison."
