Earl Grant was a multiple talent: a great singer, a swinging organist whose mastery of the Hammond B-3 was a thrill to listen to, and a songwriter who could come up with material as solid as the standards he regularly recorded for Decca in his all-too-short career. This 21-track collection brings together the cream of his stay at Decca, featuring hits like "The End," "Ebb Tide," "Misty," "Teach Me Tonight," and his own "Swingin' Gently," with the bonus track of "The End" sung in Italian thrown in to round out the package. A great song selection and superb mastering make this a marvelous introduction to this pop-jazz artist.
