 Art Farmer : The Meaning of Art - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
A relaxed and reserved swing typical of Farmer identifies "Just the Way You Look Tonight," while a loping melody leads to solos ad hoc in extensia for the ten-and-a-half-minute Keezer composition, "Free Verse," which finds Blake switching from his usually lurid, sweet tenor, to a more edgy soprano saxophone.
There's a certain urgency to Benny Golson's ballad "One Day Forever," and this is where Farmer shines -- his round, distinct trumpet sounds clear as a bell, against Keezer's piano, nodding in approval.
The release is a testimony to Farmer's endurance as one of the truly great jazz musicians of the late 1900s.
