This is a sizzling meeting of three fine alto saxophonists in a session co-produced by Vincent Herring and Carl Allen. Phil Woods is the acknowledged dean of the alto, and his smooth chops contrast with Herring's grittier tone on bop classics like "Blue Minor" and "Minority." The veteran creates a sensational mood on "Stars Fell on Alabama," while Herring matches him with a lovely take of "Autumn in New York." The talented youngster Antonio Hart delivers a compelling solo in his feature, "God Bless the Child." All three saxophonists solo with gusto on Woods' "Song for Sass." The rhythm section includes Carl Allen on drums, Anthony Wonsey on piano, and Reuben Rogers on bass. ~ Ken Dryden
