The third Andy Kirk
CD put out by the Classics label (reissuing all of Kirk's
swing-era recordings) is primarily for completists, for the then-popular but rather dated singer Pha Terrell
is on the majority of the songs. There are some good moments from pianist Mary Lou Williams
and tenor saxophonist Dick Wilson
(particularly on the instrumentals), with the most memorable numbers being "A Mellow Bit of Rhythm," "Twinklin'," and "The Big Dipper," but Terrell
is often difficult to sit through.
