Ah, Rio

Recorded at Power Play Studios, Long Island City, NY. Smaller group. Turrentine with George Benson (g), Jimmy Smith (organ), Ron Carter (b), and Jimmy Madison (d). On two cuts, also Jimmy Ponder (g), and Les McCann (p). Great combination of musicians as on earlier cookers, but time has passed — it does not come off. Pleasant enough though, but lacks high spots.
