Steady as she goes

(4 out of 5 stars)
"This album originally came out on the Savoy label in 1958, and it's a "typical" (not spectacular, but solid all around) modern jazz outing from the period. Phil Woods (alto sax) is the "star" of the session, and his energetic, extroverted playing makes the date a huge success. Phil just loves to eat up those changes! All the tunes are Bagley originals, and only one ("Odd Man Out") fails to impress. Not an album that would make anyone's Best-Ever list, but the music swings and gives pleasure from beginning to end."
