    Not a lot for jazz fans here, a bit of George Benson’s brilliant jazz guitar playing here and there, but this album I would describe as quality pop. That’s fine if that’s your bag, but its not mine! Nat Cole, Ella Fitz, Harry Connick Junior, Mel Torme and many more managed to please pop audiences with programmes that retained a considerable jazz content, its very hard to find here.
