Recorded at Sage & Sound Studios, Hollywood, California on September 9th and 10th, 1991.
Good '91 session featuring the steady cool and bop-tinged alto sax solos of Bud Shank in a combo setting. He's backed by pianist Mike Wofford, bassist Bob Magnusson, and drummer Sherman Ferguson. They tackle familiar standards and a few originals, and make satisfying, if unchallenging, music. ~ Ron Wynn
