INCLUDES 2 BONUS TRACKS
CONTAINS NEW SPECIALLY PREPARED LINER NOTES BY PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ’s WRITER BRIAN MORTON AND BY PARIS' PRESTIGIOUS JAZZ MAGAZINE
"Almost every track here is a small classic that you’re bound to have heard somewhere, without realizing what it was. “Manha de Carnaval”, Luiz Bonfá’s peerless melody, is another that surfaces constantly in movies and behind commercials. Likewise Jobim’s “One Note Samba”, which varies the meter and changes the pace most effectively. Jones recognized that he had something that could change the meter and flavor of almost any piece. “On the Street Where You Live” loses its slightly plonking sentimentality and turns into a celebration of community. “A Taste of Honey” acquires a new and exotic quality. " - Penguin Jazz to Jazz
"There are few albums more enchanting than this one, which finds the perfect balance, among other things, to make everything swing, and to make us dance better. And you’ll be amazed to hear the voices of Roland Kirk, Paul Gonsalves, Jim Hall and Clark Terry. Yes, all of them are here".- Jazz Magazine
