I had occasion yesterday to listen to CRYSTAL ILLUSIONS. I hadn't heard it in quite awhile, and it was good to hear again. I know that some of our members give it lower marks for Dave Grusin's orchestrations, but that's one of the things I like about it. I feel that Brasil '66's sparser setting had been in evidence for the bulk of the prior four albums, and it was time for something a little different. The way that the Tijuana Brass sound was enhanced with Shorty Rogers' work on WARM parallels CRYSTAL ILLUSIONS. Indeed, both albums include the song, "Pretty World."
