Mike Longo spent many years as Dizzy Gillespie’s pianist, arranger and musical director. On an album devoted almost exclusively to his own well-crafted compositions and arrangements, his large New York State of the Art Jazz Ensemble, comprising some of New York’s finest musicians, performs his medium-groove blues with polish and gusto. Longo’s own improvised solo is appealingly economical and effective.
