Paul Smith Sextet - Delicate Jazz

Lovely music from pianist Paul Smith — working here on one of his most standout sessions of the 50s, thanks to the presence of horn players Bob Cooper on tenor and Julie Kinsler on flute! The style is still very much in the same fluid area as Paul's Liquid Sounds work for Capitol — but the addition of the tenor and flute really fleshes things out nicely, and gives the record a sparkling sound that's mighty nice — almost more 60s swinging in its conception at times, especially given the guitar work by Toni Rizzi ! In addition to Smith's piano, the group also features bass by Joe Mondragon and drums by Stan Levey — and titles include "Chicken Wings", "Gisele", "Cookie Time", "But Not For Me", "Fine & Dandy", "Lady In Red", and "Love Walked In".

Thanx Mel for another Paul Smith!
I presume that this album is the perfect companion for the previous one posted "Cool & Sparkling", that I really enjoyed. Perfect to hear while drinking something really good like a scotch or a good red burgundy, and if possible, with a good companion.
Regards from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Thanks Mel. Smith est un bon pianiste, mais je le trouve un peu raide. Très loin des maitres de cette époque en particulier Bud ou Elmo Hope.
