Alto saxophonist Lenny Hambro is better known for playing alongside jazz figures like Gene Krupa, Chico O'Farrill, and Tito Puente.

Hambro was a disciple of Charlie Parker, and the few sessions he did release portrayed that influence. These 11 tracks, a combination of standards and originals, should please both the collector and casual listener alike.
