I’ll Sing You a Lullaby


Altoist Vincent Herring continues to grow through the years. Still a bit influenced by Cannonball Adderley, Herring has developed his own personal voice on alto and has developed into a strong soprano sax player, too. This straight-ahead hard bop set finds Herring in top form and inspired by such talented sidemen as the Freddie Hubbard-influenced trumpeter Jeremy Pelt (who is on three songs) and pianist Anthony Wonsey. Jill Seifers has a heartfelt vocal on Herring’s “I’ll Sing You a Lullaby.” The seven instrumentals feature Herring at the peak of his creative powers, making this one of his strongest recordings to date.
