      Thanks for this! With regard to your comment about Reprise...I could not agree more. One of my favourite domestic labels.

        Wasn't the Reprise label the one Frank Sinatra started after his long term deal with Capitol ended?

      Nice work on the review. I feel the same way about jazz brass with strings, but this one sounds like an important exception to the general rule.

        I have yet to hear a BW album i don't like, Johnny Hodges also comes to mind. They're all imbued with a big, humid and breathy sound that makes everything he plays sound fresh and dreamy, but you must like early jazz standards. A few guys I knew that only collected and listened to hard bop and free jazz would step on a BW record if it were in their way - to each his own!

          I meant to say Lester Young (also a tenor sax player) but Johnny hodges was an alto sax god in his own right.

        Plus one and I don't even go back to the mono era. You can get a little snapshot of Ben Webster in Norman Granz's biography too.
