Jimmy Rowles - Weather in a Jazz Vane

The focus is on Jimmy Rowles's piano throughout this relaxed and well-rounded reissue of an Andex session. Rowles is joined by trumpeter Lee Katzman, valve trombonist Bob Envoldsen, Bill Holman on tenor, altoist Herb Geller, bassist Monty Budwig and drummer Mel Lewis for renditions of nine superior standards, all of which have references to seasons, weather or the sun in their titles. Highlights include "With the Wind and the Rain in Your Hair," "When the Sun Comes Out," "Some Other Spring" and Rowles's spontaneous vocal (his first on record) on "Too Hot for Words."
