Hank Jones - Here's Love

A jazz version of Meredith Willson's score to Here's Love — one of those musicals that actually seems to survive more in the ranks of jazz history than Broadway history – thanks to recordings like this, which pumped up the score a bit ! The groove is nicely soulful — very much like other work on Argo Records at the time — and Hank Jones leads a group that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums — all well matched players who really bring a lot to the date. Titles include "My Wish", "Dear Mister Santa Claus", "That Man Over There", "Arm In Arm", and "My State My Kansas My Home".

It's a terrible score, at least as I feel after listening to it more than half a dozen times when a university friend played it regularly more than 40 years ago. But that has nothing to do with jazz treatments, and for tastefulness it's hard to beat Hank Jones. Thanks, Mel!
