Blues For D.P.
Wait For The Beep
For Toddlers Only
Cut And Paste
My Personal Songbook is the first recording of the grand master’s original compositions to be made with a big band, in this case the WDR Big Band from the Cologne radio station of that name.
Two concerts in Cologne and three respectively in Geneva, Zürich and Essen solidified the close relationship between the WDR band and their new star collaborator. The music on these studio recordings has real polish and shine, and the opening tune Eight and its successor Receipt, Please are bright and breezy which may be what you want.
