Close

For Someone I Love is an album by vibraphonist Milt Jackson featuring big band performances arranged by Melba Liston recorded in 1963 and released on the Riverside label.

“The main reasons for this CD reissue’s success are Melba Liston’s inventive and unpredictable arrangements for the brass orchestra. Vibraphonist Milt Jackson has nearly all the solos (although trumpeter Clark Terry, trombonist Quentin Jackson, Julius Watkins on French horn and Major Holley on tuba do make their presence known) and seems understandably inspired by the backup orchestra which consists of four or five trumpets, three trombones, three or four French horns, Holley’s tuba and a rhythm section. The well-conceived set (which includes such songs as “Days of Wine and Roses,” “Save Your Love for Me,” some Duke Ellington ballads and “Bossa Bags”) is consistently excellent, making this a highly recommended set.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic .
