Michele Hendricks' debut as a leader, which has been reissued on CD, finds Jon Hendricks' daughter carrying on the bebop tradition while infusing the music with her own personality. In addition to a fine rhythm section led by pianist David Leonhardt, Hendricks is joined by tenors Stan Getz ("Old Devil Moon" and "Prelude to a Kiss") and Ralph Moore (for three songs) on separate selections. Michele Hendricks displays a highly appealing and strong ability to swing. Well worth acquiring, as are her two other slightly later Muse releases.
