Overview

Fifteen selections taken from the valuable vaults of Verve have been reissued on this CD, which salutes the Rodgers & Hart songwriting team with a full set of instrumentals. The roster of artists is quite impressive: Shirley Horn, Stan Getz, Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster, Art Tatum, Bill Evans, Clifford Brown and Max Roach, J.J. Johnson, Erroll Garner, Charlie Parker, pianist Stephen Scott, Gerry Mulligan, Benny Carter and Ben Webster. All of the performances are currently available on other CDs so this release will only be of passing interest to serious collectors but it does give listeners a well-rounded overview of the important music recorded for Verve through the years.
