In the 50's I discovered Phil Wood's music (Phil&Quil) in a Sherman&Clay record booth and have been a fan ever since. His solo is about as close to being a classic on my favorite Brubeck tune;"In Your Own Sweet Way". His playing is more restraint than usual because of the ballad type of tune's in this CD. Pianist Bob Corwin is a bit too restraint here for me,but his playing is neat and not cluttered,that's for sure. Sonny Dallas is a good sturdy dependable bassist and Nick Stabulas is a pretty good 'Philly Joe Jones type drummer. Overall This is a very good cd and a keeper. Wood's lower register was at this time not as robust as later in his career. So with Corwin being too restraint and Wood's lower register not being full enough for me I decided to give this cd 4 star's.
I'm being very fussy here because to me this still is a very good session and I still would recommend this recording session.

This long-out-of-print CD has finally been reissued and it's a must-have for Phil Woods fans, or for anyone interested in an excellent example of post-Parker be-bop saxophone. The sound quality is excellent, the rhythm section is very competent and Phil is at the top of his game on a nice mix of standards and originals. It's easy to see why he has been the benchmark for jazz alto for decades. His swing and inventiveness are nicely showcased as he eases his way through the list of tunes. If one were to buy one or two CD's that best show Phil Woods' ability to create meaningful jazz, this one would have to be high on the list for consideration. Don't miss it!

Everything that Phil Woods did from the 1950s as a sideman for many great bands, through the formation of his own bands in the 60s through the present day is great. I really liked this album because it not hard bop, and yet, the compositions are rich and complex. I purchased it because I like everything he did during his early years. This is much better than I expected.

As one of two great albums that Phil Woods have released for Epic Records in
the late-1950’s, he would scored an even bigger hit with this highly supercharged
hard bop masterpiece in 1958 where he once again reached another artistic level
of high voltage excellence, capped with high swinging interplay and direct utmost
audio attack performed with such an astonishing rate. Generally hailed as one of
his greatest and most popular achievements, Warm Woods deliver a chock full of
high octane saxophone riffs, boisterous energy, cutting edge brilliance, it’s superb
combination of hot swinging jazz and cool improvisational merit, sheer vitality and
a unique first class atmospheric listening experience highlighted by Phil’s steadily
driven power and mighty force. Highly showcased by a stellar track set that begin
with his soaring version of Dave Brubeck’s In Your Own Sweet Way, the track set
builds up to a high pitched momentum on other memorable compositions such as
Squire’s Parlor, Gunga Din, the masterful Took The Spook, the lovely Waltz For A
Lovely Wife and Waiting On The Left Bank, as well as on magnificent versions of
classic standards such as Easy Living, I Love You, I’ve Got A Feeling You’re Fool-
in’ and There Will Never Be Another You. Heading the fascinating rhythm section,
Phil brings his wind pipes to even astounding heights of world class excellence as
he contributes to the musical power Warm Woods has to offer where he strikes up
combo with stunning energy that rattles the senses with both fascinating virtuosity
and world class confidence amid the caliber rhythms.
