The Les Hooper Band: Out of the Woods

Read "Out of the Woods" reviewed by Jack Bowers

On “New Suit for Zoot" (aka “Tickletoe"), the latest edition of Les Hooper's southern California-based big band kicks the accelerator and really burns rubber. Unfortunately, that's one of the few high spots in an otherwise curiously lackluster album that seems to be aimed for the most part at what's left of the commercial jazz market.
