All Stars

Rich and resonant jazz from one of the early greats of alto saxophone; he was well into his 70s on this 1980s recording, but actually sounds better than he did back in the 1930s. The band really swings hard, with Red Norvo on xylophone and Nat Adderley on cornet; Nat’s menacing vocal on his own composition ‘Work Song’ makes this the definitive version.
