    On The New Young Lions of Jazz, noted Arkadia and Postcard bandleaders present songs as showcases for solo forays by a different featured performer on each track. Leading off the disc, James Carter works out elegantly on the tenor sax on "My Favorite Things," led by Benny Golson. On one of the few vocal selections in this four-CD series, Kurt Elling has fun with "What's Your Choice, Rolls Royce" while Joanne Brackeen leads. Another very excellent selection is the weeping elegance provided by Ravi Coltrane on tenor horn to "Over the Rainbow" under Brackeen's guidance. ~ Tom Schulte
