I think of this album as an example of what people are talking about when they say that Davis' Kind of Blue LP was off-speed on the A-side until Sony corrected it in the 90s. Benson's version of "So What" and Grant Green's version from Sunday Mornin' both sound a bit too fast for someone who has really only ever heard the "corrected" Kind of Blue. I begin to think that Sony was earnest when they claimed to have discovered and fixed this error. That said, Benson kills it anyway, too fast or not.
