Album Review

This CD reissue not only brings back the six songs from the LP of the same name, but adds "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear," a previously unreleased alternate take of "'Round Midnight" from the guitarist's earlier session with baritonist Pepper Adams, and three 1988 unaccompanied guitar solos (a medley of "Lush Life" and "Daydream," "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You," and Charlie Parker's "Quasimodo"). The bulk of the set matches Leitch in 1985 with pianist Kirk Lightsey, bassist Ray Drummond, and drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith. The CD as a whole finds the guitarist in prime form playing superior tunes — including "My One and Only Love," Wayne Shorter's "Speak No Evil," Thelonious Monk's "Off Minor," and two of Leitch's own straight-ahead originals — and is his definitive release.
