O’s Notes: Woods is a living jazz legend as a composer and performer on sax. Back in 1961 he was inspired by the children’s books of A. A. Milne (Winnie the Pooh) and wrote fifteen songs to match the words. These works sat pretty much in obscurity for most of the last 47 years until Woods met up with Peter Dennis, the only person licensed to perform Milne’s works. That was the key to unleashing the magic! Woods performs with a large ensemble and Dennis narrates. It’s jazzy Pooh! The Children’s Suite is a fun session to listen to and a welcome change of pace.
