Intermediate / Advanced
A truly outstanding collection of tunes with emphasis on melody. As usual, Jazzmen have made each of these songs "standards" through their own performing. In particular, John Coltrane, Tommy Dorsey, Sarah Vaughn, and Benny Carter have enjoyed the songs well enough to record them over the decades. What better endorsement for the melodic and harmonic value of these great songs than this refreshing tour of great American songwriting. Rhythm Section: Rob Schneiderman (p); Rufus Reid (b); Akira Tana (d). Titles: Stardust * Emily * Sweet Lorraine * Easy Living * Serenata * Mr. Lucky * Ghost of a Chance * Stars Fell on Alabama * When Lights are Low * I'm Getting Sentimental Over You * The Night Has a Thousand Eyes * Too Young to Go Steady.
