Les DeMerle's 4th recording for Origin is another swinging affair that further cements his
reputation as one of the most dynamic drummers in jazz. Recorded live in front of an
enthusiastic audience, the band sizzles on 15 tunes including classics such as "Cute,"
"Jumpin' With Symphony Sid," and the soul hit "Compared to What." With vocalist Bonnie
Eisele, they caress standards "The Shadow of Your Smile," "The More I See You," and
"Stardust," and they define future standards including the title cut "Cookin' at the Corner"
by pianist Mike Levine.
