Willow Weep For Me
Label: Verve Reissues
Verve recorded live dates by Wes and the Wynton Kelly trio, then had Claus Ogerman layer in orchestra charts. Much better than you'd expect, with striking solos from Wes and Wynton. Ogerman lets the great band take center stage, often having the orchestra sit out for minutes at a time. Perhaps only Errol Garner does a finer "Misty" than the one heard here.
