Sam Most’s very last recording, featuring all new compositions from the multi-talented Carl Saunders, was recorded and finished just a month prior to Most’s passing on June 13, 2013. One of the most beloved figures in jazz, he is best known for being a pioneering jazz flute soloist. This album is full of spirit, with catchy toe-tapping originals that include Sam scatting perfectly, this is really great stuff!
