Le Grand Freddy by Freddy Cole

Start with the perfect match- Michel Legrand's eloquent melodies and the insightful lyrics of Alan and Marilyn Bergman . Add the silky voice of Nat's younger brother. Back him up with Mike Renzi,George Mraz,Grady Tate, Joe Locke,Lew Soloff and Lou Marini. Invite Grover Washington,Jr ,Cedar Walton and Cyrus Chestnut as guests on several cuts.Give all these musicians plenty of playing room .

The result-a marvelous CD.Included are a lightly swinging "I Will Wait For You " ;"How Do You KeepThe Music Playing ", done as a slow samba highlighting Marini's 'flute;a bluesy "One At a Time "with appropriately down and dirty trumpet by Soloff ; 'Make The World Your Own", a jazz waltz featuring Locke on vibes :the ubiquitous "Windmills of Your Mind "and "Once Upon A Summertime "with lyrics by Alan Bergman's mentor, Johnny Mercer. Renzi's comping throughout is superb.

This CD is guaranteed to keep you and yours toasty warm during those cool winter nights.
