Jazz for When You're Alone as released by Savoy Jazz in 2003 is basically an expanded version of the Jazz for When You're Alone disc released by 32 Jazz in 1999. Instead of one disc, there are now two, which increases the total number of tracks from 11 to 17. The new tracks are drawn from the same source as those on the original release, the catalog of the Muse label from the '70s, '80s, and '90s. Jazz giants like Houston Person, Willis Jackson, Donald Byrd, and Kenny Burrell all contribute tracks and brush shoulders with jazz middleweights like Wallace Roney, Vincent Herring, and Carol Welsman. As the title suggests, the songs are relaxed and the mood is mellow and reflective. Although the songs date from well-beyond jazz's peak years, the performances are uniformly solid and the disc is a nice, low-priced collection of mood music.
