O’s Notes: The sweetness of Phil’s alto sax is reinforced by the power of the Los Angeles Jazz Orchestra to spell musical euphoria. This is a modernization of Art Pepper Plus Eleven, now recognized as one of the all-time classic jazz recordings. It consists of a dozen Marty Paich arrangements of bop standards. From “Donna Lee” to “Shaw’nuff” it rocked then and it rocks today. You can’t miss on this one.
