Altoist Phil Woods’ second recording as a leader is a rather brief 33-minute set. Accompanied by a quiet but swinging rhythm section (pianist John Williams, bassist Teddy Kotick, and drummer Nick Stabulas), Woods swings hard on four standards (including “Slow Boat to China” and “Be My Love”), plus a pair of his originals: “Strollin’ with Pam” and “Woodlore.” The altoist displays plenty of energy and a strong command of the bebop vocabulary, sounding quite enthusiastic.
