Swinging stuff
S J Buck | Kent, UK | 11/11/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Recorded in 1962, this is a laid back affair thats worth getting if you're a keen fan of swinging Jazz. Amazingly this album was only remastered in 2001 and its already out of print in the UK.

The musicians on the album are some of the very best:
Red Garland - Piano
Blue Mitchell - Trumpet
Pepper Adams - Baritone Sax
Sam Jones - Bass
Philly Joe Jones - Drums

Red Garland of course most famously worked with Miles Davis and here he's in top form backed by the classy musicians above. Its great to hear the the sadly underused baritone Sax. What a beautiful sound it makes.
My favourite track is the lovely version of Gershwins marvellous "Love Is Here To Stay". A great song and a superb version.

This was a one-off session that deserves to be better known.
