The Incomparable Mundell Lowe - Souvenirs

This CD features guitarist Mundell Lowe on two separate occasions. Eight selections are from 1977, and other than an unaccompanied version of his "I Think You Always Knew," these find Lowe leading a trio also including bassist Bob Magnusson and drummer Nick Ceroli. Ceroli passed away before the four numbers from 1992 were cut (two Lowe duets apiece with either pianist Mike Wofford or Magnusson), so this set is subtitled "A Tribute to Nick Ceroli." Lowe mostly sticks to standards, although he contributed two tunes and also performs Al Cohn's "P-Town," Benny Carter's "Souvenirs," and Miles Davis' late-period "Star People." Overall, this CD serves as a particularly strong introduction to the music of the underrated Mundell Lowe.
