I will say without equivocation that this latest assembly of Frank
Griffith's work has delighted me.

GREAT NEW CD!
I am a great admirer of the work of Frank Griffith. He is an admirable tenor player, a delightful clarinettist with a wonderful tone, an arranger and composer of great skill and ingenuity and as though all that wasnt enough, he is as kindly and modest a man as you could ever wish to meet.
Body & Soul is one of the greatest Ballads ever and Franks version is a welcome addition to the fine soloists from Coleman Hawkins onward who have played it.
