O’s Notes: This is previously unreleased materiel, live recordings of Joe! They were recorded at Pio’s in Providence, RI during 1964. The lineup: Junior Mance (p), Bob Cranshaw (b), Mickey Roker (d) and Ben Webster (sax) behind Williams, the singer. This is a treasure! Joe sounds great and Ben’s compliments on tenor sax are deep throaty and just what is prescribed for the quintet. There are thirteen memorable tracks, songs that you know and will enjoy. Enjoy it, we did!
