Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Drummer Eddie Marshall never cut many albums as a leader, but we'll always love him for this one – a sublime San Francisco 70s session that features tremendous vibes from the great Bobby Hutcherson! But actually, the whole group's great – and also includes George Cables on piano, James Leary on bass, and Manny Boyd on tenor and soprano sax – who works alongside Hutcherson's vibes with some of the same soulful currents as Harold Land from earlier years! The tunes are well-paced – mostly by Marshall, with a slight undercurrent of spirituality – and a lyrical beauty that almost has Bobby in "Little B's Poem" territory at times.
A Cook's Tour takes viewers along for a ride with chef/writer Tony Bourdain as he travels to more than a dozen countries in search of rare, legendary and sometimes dangerous foods. Some of the locales and delicacies are challenging, others are more familiar - from the heart of dark Cambodia to the streets of sun drenched Los Angeles. "There's no script, there's really scary locations," says Bourdain, "It's very different."
