O’s Notes: This is the George Gee Big Band being directed by Frank Foster. Frank, one of the underrated composers on the scene displays his wares directing a fine band playing a wide variety of tunes including a couple of his own tunes. The band includes all of Gee’s regulars with Howard Johnson stepping in on baritone sax & bass clarinet. Carla Cook adds beautiful vocals on several tracks, notably “Lover Come Back To Me”. This is exceptionally well done!
