Eddie Higgins fronts a quintet, with string arrangements by Dick Lieb backing him on most tracks, as he covers ten standards.
The effect of this lineup invites comparisons to the George Shearing Quintet of old. The final track, "When April Comes," is an original ballad by the leader in a soft bossa nova setting. The overall effect of this recommended CD makes it perfect for late-evening listening with someone special.
