The Henry Johnson Quartet
An Evening at Sea

There is No Greater Love
Gone With the Wind
Corcovado; In a Sentimental Mood
Wave; I've Got the World on a String
My Shining Hour; Oleo (76.46)

Henry Johnson, guitar; Kenny Drew Jr., piano; Larry Gray, bass; Paul Humphrey, drums

A neat quartet led by a highly capable guitarist Johnson is following the path ploughed by Wes Montgomery and George Benson. At the back of Henry is the energetic pianist Kenny Drew Jr., who is showing signs of being a credit to his famous father's memory. Larry Gray is just right for the group and slots in well with the highly experienced Paul Humphrey to make an ideal rhythm section.

An entertaining and swinging set by four musicians enjoying themselves in an ideal setting.
