Reviewby Scott Yanow
The follow-up to clarinetist Tony Scott's Golden Moments (both of which were released for the first time on Muse albums of the mid-1980s) uses the same group (a quartet with pianist Bill Evans, bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Pete LaRoca) and almost reaches the same heights. Scott was one of the finest clarinetists of the late 1950s before deciding to become a sketchily documented world traveler. This live date has lengthy versions of "Stella By Starlight," "I'll Remember April," "A Night In Tunisia" and the blues "Garrison's Raiders." The boppish music hints at future developments and both this album and Golden Moments (which gets the edge) are highly recommended. [I'll Remember was reissued as part of 32 Jazz's double-disc set, At Last, in 1999.]
