Virtually all of saxophonist Gerald Albright
's previous recordings were in the pop/R&B field, making this mostly straight-ahead session a major surprise. Albright
, alternating between alto and tenor, plays quite well throughout this set, which is highlighted by versions of "Impressions," "Georgia on My Mind," and "Limehouse Blues." Tenorman Kirk Whalum
helps out on three tracks, and Eddie Harris
makes a guest appearance on "Bubblehead McDaddy." This is easily Gerald Albright
's most rewarding session to date.
