Joined by a fine local rhythm section that includes pianist Lee Bloom, Stein explores some of his favorite songs, including several obscurities such as Herbie Nichols' catchy "Shuffle Montgomery," André Previn's "Two for the Seesaw," and the always welcome "Autumn Nocturne." This high-quality straight-ahead jazz set is highly recommended.

    AWESOME JAZZ!

    Stein is a master on the sax in the spirit of the great tenors like Ben Webster, Don Byas, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon......I love this record!
