With these sides, Herb Geller and his All-Stars set down one of the best jazz versions of Jule Stynes score from the Broadway musical Gypsy.
Gellers brilliant improvisational ability is put to the test in some of the numbers, there are also outstanding contributions from Thad Jones and a young Scott LaFaro on bass, while in four of the tunes Barbara Longs beautiful voice and deep feeling for jazz give Sondheims lyrics the attention they deserve. And Herb Gellers arrangements carry off the difficult feat of not only reflecting the emotional essence of the original show, but also creating the climate where good jazz can flourish.
