High Quality 180g Vinyl LP!
Re-mastered by Ray Staff at Air Mastering!

One of the principal creators of West Coast Jazz, Milton "Shorty" Rogers played trumpet and flugelhorn. For this album, Rogers and a host of musicians perform jazz tunes played in waltz settings.

"Shorty Rogers' Jazz Waltz is exactly that, an exploration of ten compositions played in waltz settings. Only these big-band charts are hardly the waltzes heard on Lawrence Welk's long-running television series. Rogers kicks off with a swinging number ("I'm Gonna Go Fishin'") written by Duke Ellington for the soundtrack to the film Anatomy of a Murder and featuring the leader's rich flügelhorn. The lyrical take of the centuries-old folk melody "Greensleeves" alternates between the tense rhythm section and Bud Shank's gorgeous flute solo. Rogers' delightful "Be as Children" almost sounds as if it was adapted from a gospel song. The brisk treatment of Ellington's "Echoes of Harlem," featuring Paul Horn on flute, is refreshing..." - Ken Dryden/AMG
