SHM-CD reissue. Comes with a mini-description. Features new remastering if it comes from Parlophone. The gentle genius of guitarist Johnny Smith – perfectly captured in this late nite trio session from the 50s! There’s a lot more jazz here than you might guess from the “easy listening” Title – and Johnny’s working with drummer Charlie Mastropaolo and bassist George Roumanis, in a style that’s very much in keeping with his other best Roost work at the time. Smith has this way on the strings that’s like few other players of his time – a style of playing the guitar that’s so gentle, so spacious, the notes come off the instrument almost by themselves – with a lightly ringing Quality that’s the best part of the unique Johnny Smith tone.
