  7. Peter Leitch is a great player and shows several faces on this album, with the calypso song "Ghosts" (very pleasing one) or the unaccompanied "East of the sun" (a winner). I recently discovered this guy and I'm fond of his playing, another great player from Canada !

    Thank you Rhythm Changes for sharing this one
