Description
"What sets Benny's compositions apart are their shimmering contrasts," writes Marc Myers in the liner notes to this career-spanning retrospective. "By tempering gorgeous melody lines with provocative harmonies and suspenseful tempos, Benny tugs the reins slightly on beauty, restraining it from going too far. The results are songs you can't wait to hear again and again." Among the legendary saxophonist/composer's classics are "Whisper Not," "Along Came Betty," "Are You Real?" and the irresistible "Killer Joe."

"The disc spans Golson's recordings from 1957 to 2004. The first three tracks are mono, and things spring into life stereowise with 'Blues After Dark,' Golson front-lining with trombonist Curtis Fuller. On 'Along Came Betty,' which tune helped reinvigorate the Jazz Messengers, the front line of Fuller and Golson is join by Art Farmer on flugelhorn. Little observations from Golson adorn the paragraph on each of the tracks in Marc Myers' notes—such as the spiffy pimps strutting into Birdland inspiring the title of 'Killer Joe'."—Audiophile Audition
