Lyrics included. The thirteen songs included in this album are among the most popular ever produced by several of America?s leading composers such as George Gershwin and Cole Porter. As in many other tunes adopted by the Jazz idiom, many of these originated in Broadway shows. There are beautiful ballads, bluesy slow swings, soaring melodies, interesting bridges, and daring lyrics in this set that have been discovered and reinvented by many of Jazz?s most influential personalities, such as Art Tatum, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker and Michael Brecker. Try some of these out on your next club date and they?ll be instant hits with the band! Rhythm section is Jim McNeely, piano; Steve Gilmore, bass; and Bill Goodwin, drums.
