On this rewarding set, the L.A. Four (altoist Bud Shank, acoustic guitarist Laurindo Almeida, bassist Ray Brown, and drummer Jeff Hamilton) perform a Bach melody, “Carinhoso” (originally recorded by Shank and Almeida back in 1954), “Just Friends,” a “Love” medley (“Love for Sale” and “Love Walked In”), and Chick Corea’s “Spain.” Shank sticks exclusively to alto for the date, leaving his flute in its case, and the result is a more high-powered program than usual. Recommended.
