, who arranged the piece as a light samba decorated with his intricate Latin latticework. In such close confines, a potent musicality is required to carry off such a piece.

That vocalese, melded with Geissman's own harmonic Improvisation, makes for a very satisfying version of an old song, indeed.

Personnel: Dolores Scozzesi: vocals; Grant: Geissman: guitar.
