Synopsis

Amazon.com
Ahhh, here comes another 32 Jazz compilation, designed to put you in the proper frame of mind. What's that, you ask? Well, how 'bout just being cool? This batch of midtempo cookers, accompanied by the priceless je ne sais quoi liners from 32 Jazz mastermind Joel Dorn, will put you in the right mood. The sensuous tenor sax of Houston Person is featured on Ellington's "Daydream" (along with trombonist Curtis Fuller) and on a marvelous duet rendition of Sonny Rollins's "Blue Seven" with bassist Ron Carter. Cuts by Sonny Stitt, Wallace Roney, Donald Byrd, and other stellar horn players cruise along similarly at a relaxed, classic jazz pace and should add a little zip to your lazy afternoon. Who knows, you might even perk up enough to do a little soft-shoe shuffle. --Wally Shoup

One word.... wow.
Matt Culbreath | Toledo, OH | 08/10/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Whether you're a Jazz Enthusiast or mildly interested, buy this CD. The cuts on this album are mad cool, and range from the short and simple "Blue Monk" of Thelonious Monk fame, to "Walkin'", which weighs in at a hefty 9:43, but jams the entire time. It's perfect for lounging around (Hence the title...), and so I say to you again, if you enjoy Jazz, purchase this CD!"
Good quality traditional jazz
