This Creed Taylor/Desmond gem is about as good as he did, and I am among those audiophiles that have been burned far too many times by my "favorite" artists trying to interpret current "pop" music in a genre which frankly should generally stick to what it knows best. But when you hear the title tune, you are convinced that Don Sebesky knew where this was going from the very inseption. This is one "customs overpriced" cd you will thank God for. Lush, so well arranged that I wore the vinyl record out twice. "So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright" is a song most jazz artists would not touch, yet this one is so lush, it will blow your mind.."how did they do that?" Incidently, if you are a drummer, you'll flip over the emphasized sound here! Finally, for once a collection of music that probably could pass muster for more styles than any disc you'll ever own. It is jazz, easy listening, pop, and so close to new age it is hard to believe this was recorded so long ago. Desmond was infamous for blowing so soft it seemed like he used a whisper to play and you'll never hear him softer, over-all, than here!
