4 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

This excellent 1981 date from Frank Wess is, as its title suggests, the first -- and only -- all-flute session from the man who brought the instrument to prominence as a soloist in creative mainstream jazz during the 1950s.

The original six-track program includes lovely readings of the standards "Lover Come Back to Me," "Spring Is Here," and "There Is No Greater Love," Duke Ellington's "Battle Royal," and two excellent Wess originals in "Nada Mas" and "Riled Up." In addition are bonus cuts that feature alternate takes of the standards as well as "Nada Mas."
