This CD is a bit of a departure from the usual album that Doug Webb has recorded in the past. For this release, Doug wanted to record a set of standards, primarily ballads, so that he could exercise his improvisational abilities in a more lyrical direction. He also wanted to record on various horns from his vast collection, and take advantage of his facility with both E flat and B flat reed instruments. When Alan Broadbent was invited to perform at Ken Poston's series of concerts in May of  2014, the long awaited opportunity presented itself. Alan's wonderful talents as an arranger and composer are equaled only by his great ability as a pianist and accompanist. He was the perfect pianist to assist Doug in bringing his ideas to fruition. The location selected was Nolan Shaheed's Studio in Pasadena, with Putter Smith and Paul Kreibich invited to round out the rhythm section. Because of time constraints on Alan's stay in Los Angeles, no rehearsal time being available, it was settled that the selections to be performed and recorded would be familiar to all and no written parts would be used. This is a totally improvised set. The results are as excellent as the personnel involved.
