About the album

"A new Harry Allen CD is always awaited with eager anticipation at Challenge and this, his third effort on our behalf, has us happy and excited because we think it's his best yet and that is saying something. With him we are very happy to have his stalwart team of 3 fine musicians, Rossano Sportiello (piano), Joel Forbes (bass) and Chuck Riggs (drums) and joining them comes a real bonus in the shape of cornettist Warren Vaché – a man of great repute who manages to be both lyrical and forceful at the same time, who guests on 4 tracks. As was the case with Harry's previous 2 CD's for us, I came up with a basic theme and a list of possible songs for Harry's approval and also as before, Harry approved the idea and improved the list." (from the linernotes written by Chris Ellis)

Harry Allen

Gene Lees writes, 'Stan Getz was once asked his idea of the perfect tenor saxophone soloist. His answer was, 'My technique, Al Cohn's ideas, and Zoot's time.' The fulfillment of that ideal may well be embodied in thirty-year-old Harry Allen.' BMG recording artist Harry Allen has over twenty recordings to his name. Three of Harry's CDs have won Gold Disc Awards from Japan's Swing Journal Magazine, and his CD Tenors Anyone? won both the Gold Disc Award and the New Star Award. His recordings have made the top ten list for favorite new releases in Swing Journal Magazine's reader's poll and Jazz Journal International's critic's poll for 1997, and Eu Nao Quero Dancar (I Won't Dance), the third Gold Disc Award...
