Album Review

After a lucrative career playing commercial music, tenor-saxophonist Nino Tempo returned to the Stan Getz-inspired music that he loved most in his later years. This live set features him in a quintet with trumpeter Conte Candoli, pianist Mike Lang, bassist Brian Bromberg, and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington jamming on standards and blues.

His melodic explorations of such songs as "I'm Gettin' Sentimental Over You," "Deep Purple," and "Just Friends" are enjoyable, making this one of Tempo's definitive statements in a jazz setting.
