  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    My favourite Randy Weston album - grab a drink and let yourself get carried away ..... Now playing: ... in its Phoenix CD reincarnation. One of the best albums of a jazz soloist with strings I have heard. Byrd plays magnificently, Fischer's arrangements are superb. It's a shame Warner Brothers kept this on the shelf after it was recorded.
