An eccentric person who had an erratic career, Steve White was a decent tenor saxophonist heavily influenced by Lester Young. Other than an album for Liberty, none of his sessions were previously released, including the 11 performances (two of which are alternate takes) included on this 1997 CD. Joined by pianist Jimmy Rowles, bassist Harry Babasin, drummer Roy Harte, and (on three cuts) trombonist Herbie Harper, White plays well over the basic chord changes. His odd and very spontaneous vocals are strangely humorous, if an acquired taste. Historians of West Coast jazz will be most interested by this set, which does contain some fine music along the way. ~ Scott Yanow
