Buddy Collette is among jazz's overlooked treasures. One of the artists to first define the notion of multi-instrumentalist, Collette is heard here on flute, clarinet, alto and tenor saxes. Also adding to the unique texture of this musical tour of Paris is an emphasis on brass (Frank Rosolino's trombone, Red Callender's tuba) and strings (Howard Roberts's guitar, Red Mitchell's bass), with particularly inspired use of Callender and Mitchell in lead roles.
