One of the greatest 50s showcases for the tenor talents of Warne Marsh – a deceptively understated album that captures Warne at his most fluid and creative point! The setting is a quartet – with Ronnie Ball on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Stan Levey on drums – and Marsh is magnificent throughout, really blowing with a tone that is fresh and filled with modern ideas – yet never overdone, nor too willfully complex to lose the train of the tunes. The approach is almost Konitz-soulful – a wonderful distillation of ideas in the hands of one magical talent – and titles include "Ad Libido", "It's All Right With Me", "Playa Del Ray", "Autumn In New York", and "You Are Too Beautiful".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A wonderful showcase for the tenor talents of James Brandon Lewis – a player who's just starting out on what will most likely be a rich career – but who's already able here to match his energy with the great William Parker on bass and Gerald Cleaver on drums! The album's got this loose ... CD
