The Best of the Houdini's: Live at Kiama Jazz Festival Australia

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The Houdini's, who can be quite rambunctious, mostly play it straight on this live set. The music and solos are excellent, falling into the area of modern hard bop and occasionally stretching its boundaries.
