Nice and solid.
Went to school with one of these guys...though I didn't know him well. So, being curious, I bought the CD for my son who is a big jazz fan (at five years old)and we listened to it together. Although my son still prefers Hooker, McKinley Morganfield,etc., he found this CD to be interesting enough to put it on his continuous play list. He thought that it was "Fun." I found the CD to be fun as well and an easy listen. Very nice and very solid.
