4.5 Stars - Very Good/Excellent - "...[LOVE, LOST & FOUND] finds him sculpting the air with even greater strength of purpose and personal directness....His every breath at the session tells of a man who uses a blend of pride and blues feeling to restore love, mend broken dreams and forge ahead in life..."
JazzTimes - 2/96, p.78
"...He has crafted a still quiet but more varied set of standards by just a slight juggling of meters and tempos....Morgan's finest work of the decade."

Product Description:

Personnel: Frank Morgan (alto saxophone); Cedar Walton (piano); Ray Brown (bass); Billy Higgins (drums).
Recorded at Conway Studios, Studio A, Hollywood, California on March 7-9, 1995.
Frank Morgan moved from Antilles to Telarc with Love, Lost and Found, which emphasizes the altoist's romantic side and boasts Cedar Walton on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. Those who had been following Morgan's career knew that he was a magnificent ballad player, and ballads are a very high priority on this CD. Most of the standards that he embraces had been recorded time and time again over the years, including "Skylark," "I Can't Get Started," "My One and Only Love," and "Don't Blame Me." But Morgan's playing is so personal and so darn soulful that one doesn't mind hearing yet another version of "What Is This Thing Called Love" or "All The Things You Are." It's best for musicians to stay away from such warhorses unless they have something really personal to bring to them, and thankfully, Morgan does. Though it doesn't offer a lot of surprises, Love, Lost and Found is a rewarding disc that admirers of Morgan's more romantic playing will appreciate. ~ Alex Henderson
