Phil Woods, the searing Alto saxophonist and clarinetist, calls his occasional expanded combo "the Little Big Band". Here's To My Lady, the octet's first recording, offers up a hot band with inventive solos and big-sounding, imaginative ensembles. This is an album with no let downs.

Altoist Phil Woods took a rare vacation from playing with his regular group to collaborate with pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist George Mraz and drummer Kenny Washington on this fine straight-ahead quartet date. The 13 selections are fairly concise (clocking in between 3-7 minutes apiece) and most of the material (other than "Canadian Sunset," "Yours Is My Heart Alone," "Blue and Sentimental" and Bill Evans' classic "Waltz for Debby") consists of either obscurities or recent originals. A special bonus is that Woods plays his appealing clarinet on three numbers. Highlights include "Charles Christopher" (a tribute to Charlie Parker), "Butter" and Hal Galper's "Just Us."

The multi-talented Esquivel was a triple threat in music history as a composer, arranger and pianist. He released his most celebrated work in 1962, More of Other Worlds, Other Sounds. The recording flourished with orchestral flair, eccentric arrangements, a booming horn section and widely unique vocal effects. With relentless energy, this exotic effort opens with the bullfighting inspired track, “The Breeze and I (Andalucia).” The album enjoyed commercial success, as various tracks have appeared in both television programs and motion picture soundtracks. For those unfamiliar with his work, this is a definitive recording.

Immortalised as the "King of Easy Listening", Andy Williams enjoyed a lifelong career on film, television and disc. This impressive collection gathers together many of his best-loved hits, though to cover comprehensively a career that began over seven decades ago would require a lot more than CDs!

A Winter Romance is perhaps best described as a "seasonal" album rather than a Christmas or holiday release, despite the inclusion of such familiar fare as "White Christmas" and "Winter Wonderland." Dean Martin has also included such standards as "The Things We Did Last Summer" and "June in January," as well as some specially written material such as Sammy Cahn and Ken Lane's title song and "It Won't Cool Off." Nevertheless, with its lush strings, well-scrubbed vocal choruses, and buoyant mood, this collection has an appropriately festive feel. Martin does a competent job, even having fun here and there when the song allows him to present his take on a similar baritone…

Grammy Award-winning acoustic guitarist Earl Klugh is releasing a new ensemble recording, The Spice of Life, April 29th, on Koch Records. The album is being described as Klugh's “first full-production release in nine years,” and is the follow-up to 2005’s Naked Guitar, which brought Klugh his eleventh career Grammy nomination. On the album, Klugh reinterprets four of his favorite standards and longtime collaborator Don Sebesky contributes five orchestral arrangements, including Klugh’s boyhood favorite “Canadian Sunset”; his reinterpretation of the Thelonious Monk classic, “Bye Ya”; and a revival of “C’est Si Bon.” Flutist Hubert Laws guests, and composer Eddie Horst arranges the chamber-group string accompaniment on the Klugh original “Heart of My Life.” The Spice of Life also features several Klugh originals. The project is said to incorporate all of the veteran instrumentalist's musical influences, from pop and soul to jazz and gospel, as well as different musical settings.
