From the back cover: Paul Smith is many things: arranger, composer, pianist – but mostly pianist. His inventive piano artistry and arrangements were much in evidence in Cascades and Cool and Sparkling, albums that featured Paul and his sextet. Now, his versatile piano style is given still wider range in Softly, Baby. For here, Paul is backed by a smaller group – three outstanding jazzmen who are stars in their own right: guitarist Barney Kessel, drummer Stan Levey and bassist Joe Mondragon.
