This album swings from the very first note till the last and Lani sounds wonderful too.
It's great to hear the hints of his original work, ala the T.J. Brass her and there!
A really enjoyable and hip recording of a marvelous artist.
Lost Treasures is probably a better bet for the old sound and new tunes.
and to hear such a different rendition to some of the old classics that are on this
CD is a welcome change from the traditional recordings it is a very good CD to
listen too if your a jazz fanatic like I am.
