All of Mandel's musical assets were in abundant evidence: a showcase for his players, strong melodic development, lovely songs, carefully calibrated dynamics, swinging ensemble writing, a love of the blues at all tempos, and a balance of the reflective and the exuberant. Along with the technical mastery, Mandel adds gratitude and humility, which makes for quite a package.
