Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Round Trip is a 1969 album by Phil Woods, produced by Johnny Pate.

“This date features Phil Woods with a large orchestra. Woods’ playing is inspired, though some of the songs, including the title track, “Love Song for a Dead Che” and “I’m All Smiles” sound rather dated, as if they might have been appropriate for a movie soundtrack of the era. Woods’ “Solitude” and Gordon Jenkins’ timeless “This Is All I Ask” are attractive ballads, as is “Here’s That Rainy Day.” Woods’ fans will want to pick this up.” – Ken Dryden/AllMusic.
