From Count Basie and Billy Eckstine to Clark Terry and Toshiko Akiyoshi, Frank Wess has a long resumé when it comes to playing with big bands. No discussion of his history would be complete without some mention of his big-band credentials, especially his association with Basie from 1953-1964. But at the same time, there is also a lot to be said for hearing the saxman/flutist stretch out in smaller combos, which is exactly what he does on 1962's Southern Comfort and 1963's Yo Ho! Poor You, Little Me. In 2000, Fantasy reissued those two Prestige dates back to back on the 68-minute CD The Long Road.
