If you are a fan of his I strongly suggest Dave Grusin's tribute to Duke Ellington which has some of the best jazz playing I have ever heard to some great arrangements of some great songs. The version of Cotton Tail is a joy.
Well said Paul. Harvey is a Master behind the drums.
Also George Benson's "Breezin" and Grusin's "Mountain Dance".
