Originally released in 1955, Woodlore finds alto saxophonist Phil Woods carrying the load as the lone horn for the first time in his career while leading a quartet that also includes John Williams (piano), Teddy Kotick (bass) and Nick Stabulas (drums). The 6-song set features a swift, minor-key version of “Get Happy” and the intense blues number “Strollin’ with Pam” alongside swinging standards like “Slow Boat to China,” “Be My Love” and “Woodlore.”
