  • Digitally remastered using 20-bit technology by Erick Labson (MCA Music Media Studios).
  • A much admired and loved man, of all the many brilliant orchestration projects this was his finest in his own right. He teases us with the opening of 'La Nevada' until the gorgeous repeated four-bar riff finally bursts on our ears with orgasmic delight. There are wonderful brass solos from John Coles, Tony Studd and Budd Johnson and a bass showcase for Ron Carter. As the opening track peters out after 15 minutes the listener enjoys the smug realization that there are a further four outstanding pieces to come.
Professional Reviews
Q (7/96, p.137) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...the arranger at the peak of his powers....Never is a surplus riff utilised in the name of authority. Everywhere there's room for soloists to move..."
