Track Listing

Unfortunately, the song order on the CD bears no resemblance to the sequence listed on the booklet and back card - that's quite annoying. Here is the correct song sequence: Your Smiling Face (Gerald Albright); New Tune (Oscar Castro-Neves); Something in the Way She Moves (Mitchel Forman Trio); Nobody But You (Les McCann); Secret O'Life (Shirley Horn); Only a Dream in Rio (Flora Purim and Airto Moreira); Fire and Rain (Poncho Sanchez' Latin Jazz Band); You Make It Easy (Robben Ford); Steamroller (Tower of Power); Long Ago and Far Away (New York Voices). (48:46)
