Howard Roberts Whatever's Fair! & All-Time Great Instrumental Hits (1966)



We're still in the wild '60s when Howard Roberts was on a roll producing some very fine pop-oriented guitar jazz as was the fad these days, a fact easily witnessed by these two magnificent Capitol LPs on one CD. Forget rock 'n roll for a moment, this is expertly crafted Daiquiris-by-the-pool music by the top session men du jour.



Personnel: Howard Roberts (guitar); Henry Cain (organ); Bill Pittman (guitar); Chuck Berghofer (bass); Earl Palmer (drums); Jill Roberts (percussion); Larry Bunker (drums)


Track listing:

1.The Shadow of Your Smile
2.Sweet September
3.Pussy Cat
4.Whatever's Fair
5.This Is the Life
6.On a Clear Day You Can See Forever
7.I'll Only Miss Her When I Think of Her
8.Manha de Carnaval
9.Michelle
10.A Taste of Honey
11.Bye Bye Blues
12.It Was a Very Good Year
13.Soft Winds
14.Autumn Leaves
15.Theme From a Summer Place
16.Mr. Lucky
17.Comin' Home Baby
18.Danke Schoen
19.Work Song
20.Desafinado (Slighty Out of Tune)
21.The In Crowd
22.Misty

both recorded in 1966

Look I know your trying to be all subtle with your links, but I can't seem to find the link for the DL. The pass was hard enough to find but the link is impossible.
I really would like to hear this artist's music!
