Album Cover
The Phil Woods Quintet
Ballads & Blues

Album JP 2009 on Venus Records label
Jazz (Bop)

Issued in a jewel box with obi strip and insert in Japanese. Recorded at the Avatar Studio in New York on June 20 & 21, 2008 (the OBI strip gives the month as May, likely a typo). Mixed and mastered by Venus Hyper Magnum Sound Direct Mix. The proofreading of the song titles and composer credits is rather sloppy, posted titles and composers are listed as they were published, not as shown on the tray card. Corrected errors and/or omissions in tracks 2, 3, 5b and 11.
