Broadway tunes, but some very hip ones – thanks to mightily swinging work from the Woody Herman
group of the 60s! Many of the numbers here are familiar ones pulled from big shows of the 1950s and early 60s – but Herman
and crew change things up wonderfully by using the tunes as lively vehicles for jazz improvisation – coming together beautifully on the head arrangements, usually with upbeat rhythms – then taking off on solo passages that sparkle with touches from players who including Nat Pierce on piano, Dusko Goykovich and Don Rader on trumpets, Andy McGhee on tenor, Phil Wilson on trombone, and Woody
himself on clarinet and alto sax! Titles include "A Lot Of Lovin To Do", "I Do Like You", "My Favorite Things", "Warm All Over", "Never Will I Marry", "Hello Young Lovers", "Who Can I Turn To", "This Can't Be Love", and "The Sound Of Music".
