Trumpet player Joe Wilder hasn't recorded many albums under his own name, which makes the CD debut of these two albums even more auspicious. The quiet reputation that Joe Wilder built was largely founded on these reserved recordings from the late '50s. Wilder is joined by Urbie Green, Hank Jones, Jerome Richardson, and Herbie Mann on Pretty Sound of Joe Wilder, which lives up to its name on a tasteful selection of ballads and standards. Jazz From "Peter Gunn" pits Wilder against Henry Mancini's television score with Jones again on piano, bassist Milt Hinton, and John Cresci Jr. on drums. ~ Wade Kergan
