A hit record for the Pete Jolly Trio in 1963, Little Bird has mostly standards, but it is Jolly's version of the catchy title track that caught on. Pianist Jolly is joined by his trio -- bassist Chuck Berghofer and drummer Larry Bunker -- plus a pair of guests, guitarist Howard Roberts and percussionist Kenny Hume. This is a fine all-around straight-ahead session, highlighted by "Never Never Land," "Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most," and "Falling in Love with Love."
