some great stuff

This is another excellent jazz cd. Only a few songs are very energetic, only a few are rainy Sunday morning slow songs. Most are in the middle of the road on tempo. I really like this cd, but sometimes it is hard for me to hear the bass & need to turn up the music to catch everything. I think it's just easier to hear the flute since it is a higher pitch. I am not saying this is not a quality recording, tho. Very happy to own this. Absolutely love Brick-a-Brac & Cool Walk.

Excellent album

Need a headphone to really appreciate the bass
