Look for the Silver Lining; Time After Time; You Go To My Head; I'll Remember April; Billie's Bounce; Soon; I Left My Heart in San Francisco; Groovin' High; My Secret Love (68.39)
Not having heard of Mort Weiss before, I listened with interest and was not displeased with his clarinet playing. He handles this delightful collection of tunes with sensitivity.
Mort is partnered with two fine players who are much in demand and who provide sound support. Guitarist Ron Eschete has come to the fore in recent years on many West Coast based recordings. Dave Carpenter is one of the most sought after bassists in California and not surprisingly he creates a powerful pulse on this CD.
Altogether a highly listenable set, ideal gentle music when the lights are low.
