 I keep hearing that Vanguard wasn't known for their jazz releases, and I keep finding gems on their label. And this is a gem. From the swining 'This Masquerade' to the soulful Moody classic 'Moody's Mood For Love'. 'Clabber Biscuits' is a soul-funk cut written for George Benson originaly. The swinging 'Last Train From Overbrook' is framed by the driving train intro and outro (too cool)...
