Not Kai's usual jazz work, but one of his excellent Verve easy jazz albums from the 60s. The format is simple, but sublime – as Kai's smooth trombone glosses over the top of arrangements of mid 60s pop, easy, and bossa tunes. Kai penned the charts himself, and players include Jerry Dodgion, Romeo Penque, Hubert Laws, Grady Tate, Jerome Richardson, Ron Carter, Joe Beck, and Bill Watrous. Kind of like the early days of CTI, before the A&M years! Titles include "Time
", "Man & A Woman", "Amor Em Paz", "Lugar Bonito", "Time
For Love", "Mini Skirt", and "Amy's Theme".
