Arkadia, 2001, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Starting with the warmth of Benny Golson’s tenor sax on “Mood Indigo”, the stage is set for romance. Arkadia’s lineup of musicians is strong and diverse, keeping this collection fresh. Randy Brecker (t) on “My Funny Valentine”, Paul Tobey dancing on the ivory for “Round Midnight”, and Kenny Drew, Jr. (p) with strings on “Passionata” highlight a very good program.
