Quiet: Essential Blue Moods contains 12 tracks comprised of romantic standards. While short on improvising or energetic interludes, this is a decent budget-line set that combines Woody Shaw, Sonny Stitt, and Red Garland with less than obvious inclusions by Ricky Ford, Wallace Roney, and Russell Gunn. For those who appreciate jazz as romantic or soothing background music, this disc will do the trick alongside Lush: Essential Ballads, also on Savoy.
