69 at the time of this recording, veteran singer Ernie Andrews is heard performing songs from his usual repertoire. Assisted by tenor saxophonist Houston Person, pianist Aaron Graves, bassist John Webber, and drummer Kenny Washington, Andrews sounds fine, but most of the interpretations lack any real surprises. "Some Enchanted Evening" swings harder than one might expect, but a Duke Ellington medley (which has rather dull versions of "Satin Doll," "I Got It Bad," and "Take the 'A' Train") is uninspired, "Old Folks" lacks much sentiment, "Over the Rainbow" is unnecessary, and a blues medley of "Articulated Blues" and "Parker's Mood" has been done better by Andrews elsewhere. A lesser effort.
