Overview

The mellow-toned tenor Spike Robinson performs ten veteran George Gershwin songs on this release from the Scottish Hep label. Four selections find Spike accompanied by a 12-piece string section, while the other six numbers are by his British quartet with pianist Brian Lemon, bassist Len Skeat and drummer Allan Ganley. While the majority of the tunes are taken as slow ballads, there are also cooking versions of "Lady Be Good" and "I've Got Rhythm." Straight-ahead jazz collectors will find virtually every Spike Robinson recording worth acquiring.
