Abate, Greg & Phil Woods with the Ray Trio
Kindred Spirits – Live at Chan’s
Label: Whaling City Sounds

This is a terrific set from 2 old masters. This is probably Phil Woods’
last performance and he is playing better than most of the current
upcoming artists. Most of these tunes are extended jams. It proves
old dogs CAN learn new tricks!
