The emphasis is on relaxed tempoes (although not exclusively) on this fine small-group swing date. Clarinetist Kenny Davern teams up with guitarist Howard Alden, bassist Phil Flanigan and drummer Giampaolo Biagi for some intimate renditions of such tunes as "Pretty Baby," "Comes Love," "Pee Wee's Blues" and "Oh, Baby." Although this CD is not quite essential, Davern has yet to record an uninspired record and his fans will have no difficulty enjoying the music.
