Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. A tremendous live performance from the group co-led by Red Rodney and Ira Sullivan – two players who really bring a lot to each other's music! There's a mode here that really blows us away – a careful, sensitive approach that allows each horn player to hit their most lyrical moments – shading things in with a far richer palette of sounds than we might ever have expected. The rest of the group's a big factor for the album's sound, though – as it features the great pianist Garry Dial, who also wrote some of the tunes – plus Jay Anderson on bass and Jeff Hirschfield on drums. Rodney plays trumpet and flugelhorn, and Sullivan plays flute, flugelhorn, alto, and soprano sax – on titles that include "How Do You Know", "As Time Goes By", "Sprint", "My Son The Minstrel", and "Speak Like A Child".
Ever feel so stressed and anxious that the very thought of relaxing aggravates you? I know I did. I felt massively overwhelmed by an endless stream of projects and tasks – and so wound up that any trivial glitch could make me explode! Eventually, I quit my high-stress job. But the stress and anxiety followed me down to the garden office! I read the advice online and tried all kinds of techniques to change my “negative thinking”. Some seemed to work. My inner stress-bunny was hidden – but still there, ready to jump out whenever times got tough. It turns out that I’d been looking for answers in the wrong place.
