|Recorded January 17th & 19th 1989 Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.
This is Tommy Flanagan at his best. Tommy plays with George (Jiri) Mraz on bass and Kenny Washington on drums.
It is a selection of standards that you've heard a hundred times, but Flanagan makes them sound fresh. He does it in an understated manner: no flamboyant displays, no funky re-harmonizing, just very melodic soloing. His solo lines are so fluid they sound effortless. It is as if he is playing another melody on the chords, as they are constructed on the whole chart, not just a few bars. This album is one of the best representations of Flanagan.
