Album Review

This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out of print LPs by jazz arranger/composer Neal Hefti: Pardon My Doo-Wah and Hefti, Hot, 'n Hearty both originally issued on Epic Records in 1958 and 1956, respectively. Highlights among the 24 tracks include "Splanky," "Ev'rything I've Got," and "Two for the Blues," which are pleasant, but not essential.
