This is one of the several collaborations between Laurindo Almeida, Ray Brown, Jeff Hamilton and Bud Shank - better known as the L.A.4 - and it stands as one of the most sincere, elegant performances of jazz arrangements and crossover pieces I have ever heard. The egos are gone, replaced with passionate, intense, but never overstated performances.
In Almeida's arrangement of Faure's "Pavane, op. 50," Bud Shank's sensitivity for the classical flute blends sweetly with Almeida's true understanding of the original, then transformed into an enlightening jazz arrangement. Ray Brown's bass playing is classic and Jeff Hamilton's performance is solid. Hearing this album, in contrast to much of the jazz & pizazz marketed today, transmits a "they don't make 'em like they used to" sense which is welcomed by the nostalgic listener.

Montage is a good name for an L.A. Four recording, because the group (Bud Shank on flute and alto, guitarist Laurindo Almeida, bassist Ray Brown and drummer Jeff Hamilton) consistently mixed together different elements to gain its own sound. Included on this date are classical themes by Claude Debussy and Heitor Villa-Lobos, three group originals (including Shank's "Madame Butterball"), "Teach Me Tonight" (taken as a samba), and cooking renditions of "My Romance" and "Squatty Roo." A fine example of the L.A. Four's unique yet very accessible music. - All Music Guide
