O’s Notes: Harry Allen is able to swing like crazy on “Riverboat Shuffle” and then warm our souls with passion on “Cry Me A River”. That makes him unique in the vast sea of saxophonists. Allen employs a solid rhythm sections and invites Warren Vaché (cornet) to join him on 4 of the 10 selections. This is an appreciable performance for lovers of classic jazz.
