Album Review

With a few exceptions, the emphasis is on slower tempos on this generally wistful and lyrical set. Bob Wilber (sticking to soprano) is assisted by the great stride pianist Ralph Sutton, guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, bassist Bob Haggart and drummer Butch Miles for a variety of songs that he enjoys. Included are three classical themes, a few ancient standards (such as two versions of Willie "The Lion" Smith's "Echo of Spring," "Floatin' Down to Cotton Town" and "Roses of Picardy"), and some off-the-wall choices (including "Mexicali Rose" and "Sonny Boy"). A melodic, pleasant and usually lightly swinging program.
