This breezy and charming collection of road tunes from Savoy Jazz wisely avoids the obvious no "Route 66", and keeps things as bright and positive as a long Sunday drive in the middle of summer. Everything here suggests easy movement, from the shimmering vibraphone of Bobby Hutcherson's "Highway One" to the Monkish angular piano of Donald Brown's "Car Tunes," or the anticipation inherent in Nat Adderley's cornet in...
