  1. Phill Woods - 111-44 (06:45)
    An Oliver Nelson original, recorded by \nhim and Eric Dolphy on the New Jazz \nLabel in 1961. The theme is presented in \nhard-bop style, after which Woods' galant \nsolo style makes itself known. The charm \nof his lusterous tone, along with his free, \n
  2. Phill Woods - Another Jones (09:46)
    Written by Hal Galper. Though based on \nthe bebop idiom, the number has a \ncontemporary sence in its progressive \ntrades between Phil's alto and the \ntrumpet and drums. The listener can \ndistinguish an interesting format where \nGalper's piano solo a
  3. Phill Woods - Gratitude (09:00)
    Tom Harrell penned this one. After \nintroducing the theme, full of modern \nharmony and feelings, Wood takes a \nrelaxed solo, followed by a beautiful bit by \nGalper on piano. Harrell's ensuing solo is \nfree and easy and is followed by Steve \nGilmore'

  6. Phill Woods - Tenor of the Times (11:04)
    Joe Roccisano's original is the epitome of \nhard bop. Woods retains the up-tempo \npace, giving ample solo time to all; I find \nthe theme ensemble part, a hot session \nby all the members, very interestin.\n--Masamichi Okazaki 1986
  7. Phill Woods - Times Mirror (07:57)
    Another Harrell original. Woods' alto is full \nof nuance and greatly contributes to the \noverall mood of this beautiful ballad. Hal \nGalper's piano solo in the middle is full of \nlyrical sense.\n--Masamichi Okazaki 1986
  8. Phill Woods - Ya Know (10:57)
    Written by Joe Emley. Though the \nconcluding number on the album starts \noff with a relaxed feeling in a medium \ntempo, Woods' solo burns more and more \npassionately as it nears the end. I think \nIt's a classic example of Woods' \nimprovisation, and
