This CD is a gem and a must! The very title Freddie Freeloader makes it worth to buy this wonderful CD! The four vocalists George Benson, Jon Hendricks, Al Jarreau, and Bobby McFerrin did an incredible job in singing the solos of Cannonball, Trane, Miles, and Wynton note by note. If you know the original from Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue, you'll love this recording.
