Kenny Poole: For George: A Tribute To A Master
Adding the essential elements of melody, harmony, and rhythm with swing, Poole states the familiar tunes and works his way smoothly through improvised extras. The rhythm of his guitar walking-bass self-accompaniment works well, especially on the bossa "Ah! Se Eu Pudesse." The guitarist even adds a brief bass line solo to "Lullabye of Birdland." Like Van Eps, Poole swings the session in predictable but comfortable fashion.
