Scott Yanow []

Manhattan Wildlife Refuge and its follow-up, The Tiger of San Pedro, are the only two recordings of trombonist Bill Watrous' impressive big band of the mid-'70s. Watrous, who takes an uncharacteristically crazy cadenza on ''Fourth Floor Walk-Up,'' is in top form on such numbers as Chick Corea's ''Spain,'' ''Dichotomy,'' and ''Zip City.'' Among his more notable sidemen are trumpeter Danny Stiles, guitarist Joe Beck, and pianist Dick Hyman.
