If Tony Bennett and Ruby Braff recorded mainstream jazz for 60s Blue Note. Most know Al in a blues context. This recording, Red Breath, celebrates his jazz side - both as a fine cornetist with a tasty, burnished brass sound and as a vocalist. His is a fresh voice, heartfelt and confident in the words he sings. And usually they're his words.
