Young at Heart

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Grant Stewart's second release for Sharp Nine is a solid effort, featuring the big-toned tenor saxophonist accompanied by some of the regulars for the label, including pianist Tardo Hammer, bassist Peter Washington, and drummer Joe Farnsworth. Part of the fun is the leader's interest in lesser known tunes, such as the whirlwind performance ofDuke Ellington's "Serenade to Sweden" (debuted in 1939 and played sporadically until the end of the composer's career) and Elmo Hope's twisting bop vehicle "Roll On."
