Ray Brown, Monty Alexander, Russell Malone          (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
  May 25, 2005

The more I listen to this, the more impressed I am. I'm not a huge fan of the guitar as a jazz instrument, but Malone really swings-in fact they all do. Great recording-you can really hear the underpinning that Ray Brown adds (in some systems, as noted in another review, this recording might seem ... more
The Searchers: The Collection        (2 of 2 found this review helpful)

I am going to offer a different view on this recording than the other reviewers.

Haggin, who viewed Toscanini's work as ... more
