Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The odds were against this recording being half as rewarding as it turned out. The late saxophonist Spike Robinson, one of the last of the great Four Brothers-style cool-toned tenors, had originally planned a tribute to Stan Getz utilizing former Getz sidemen pianist John Williams, bassist Bill Crow, and drummer Frank Isola during a tour of England.
