Review: master drummer White returns with another all-star line-up to perform a stellar set of all originals. Could be called the little big band that could. Lots of beautiful solos intertwine. The second CD is all poetry, which I did not review.
If You Like: Art Blakey, Hubert Laws, JJ Johnson, Oscar Peterson, Dexter Gordon
