Synopsis

Amazon.com
There's nothing on this all-ballad compilation to disrupt a peaceful mood, and several tunes that are performed with sufficient grace to enhance it. The great saxophonist Sonny Stitt, a master of the serene, sounds equally good on tenor and alto, while there's a sequence of three generations of fine jazz pianists: Red Garland, Donald Brown, and Darrell Grant. The centerpieces of the CD are also the highlights, with tenor saxophonist Ricky Ford offering a perfectly Ducal rendering of Ellington's "I've Got It Bad" and trumpeter Woody Shaw demonstrating a rare talent for extended lyricism on "It Might as Well Be Spring." The CD is a commendable complement to a reflective frame of mind. --Adam Rains

Wonderfully jazzy.

"32 Jazz does it again. Old songs done the old way. When I listen to this music I feel like I'm in a Jazz club at four in the morning after all the customers have gone home and the band is just playing for enjoyment. I have all the other "Jazz For ....." albums. I enjoy listening to them all."
