AMG rating Glen Gray & His Casa Loma Orchestra: Live at Meadowbrook Ballroom, Cedar Grove, NJ 1940

Here's two better than average quality home recordings of the Casa Loma Band taken from the Meadowbrook Ballroom in Cedar Grove, NJ, from two weekend shows in March of 1940. Glenn never had any big-name players in his outfit (unless you count guys like Pee Wee Hunt and Murray McEachern in the trombone section), but the band played with a precision and swing that was mesmerizing. It was also a self-contained band, in the sense that there were no add-on boy or girl singers, the vocalizing being handled by reedman Kenny Sargent or trombonist Hunt. The reed section of the Casa Loma Orchestra was its true secret weapon, with the players doubling, tripling, and quadrupling on clarinet, flute, oboe, bassoon, alto, tenor, soprano, baritone, and bass saxophones. Chart wise, the band moves effortlessly on these broadcasts, from its theme of "Smoke Rings" to swingers like "Tuxedo Junction," "Honeysuckle Rose," and "How High the Moon" to novelties like "Wham!" to heavyweight material like "Prelude in C Sharp Minor." A well-rounded band that was one of the true innovators of the big-band era, the Casa Loma Orchestra is one of the hidden treasures from this era just waiting to be discovered. Well worth investigating. ~ Cub Koda, All Music Guide

Have a Nice Day is a LP album recorded at Western Studios, Hollywood California in July-August 1971 and released in 1971, featuring Count Basie and orchestra. All the titles were composed by Sammy Nestico as composer-arranger. Studio production was by Tom Mack, sound engineer was Andy Richardson and the tape editor was Ben Jordan. The executive producer was Sonny Burke.

The disc was issued on the Daybreak records label and marketed by Polydor. This was Basie's debut for Daybreak. Nestico, a graduate of Duquesne University who worked for the US Air Force Band, primarily the Airmen of Note, in Washington, DC for 12 years after World War II, had at this time been writing for Basie for four years.

Herbie Hancock's debut as a leader, Takin' Off, revealed a composer and pianist able to balance sophistication and accessibility, somewhat in the vein of Blue Note's prototype hard bopper Horace Silver. Yet while Hancock could be just as funky and blues-rooted as Silver, their overall styles diverged in several ways: Hancock was lighter and more cerebral, a bit more adventurous in his harmonies, and more apt to break his solos out of a groove (instead of using them to create one). So even if, in retrospect, Takin' Off is among Hancock's most conventional albums, it shows a young stylist already strikingly mature for his age, and one who can interpret established forms with spirit and imagination...

For the second time in a year, a major collaboration of Miles Davis-Gil Evans from the late 1950s has been repackaged with a new dressing. This venture is not another ho-hum guest shot from a jazz dignitary sitting in with an orchestra. Clark Terry lends not only his noted name but his distinctive talents to this project, and despite the many references to his advancing age and health problems in the media, he sounds robust on this recording at the age of 84.

Arranger and conductor Jeff Lindberg points out in the liners that while the Miles Davis original served to emphasize the despair of the Gershwin opera, Terry's work vastly opens the interpretation to a much wider range of emotional coloration, which is something that I had never considered over the past 45 years. Although uncredited in the liners, the Manhattan School of Music under the direction of Justin DiCiocicco and the participation of saxophonist Dave Liebman, released a similar project in 2003 which featured the original charts for the Davis/Evans album Sketches of Spain. So, in the course of twelve months, we've been treated to two examples of tampering with the past, and the result has been positive on both occasions. The sonics of the original Gil Evans arrangement was a state-of-the-art 1958 studio recording. Current technology places this recording on a much fuller plane and adds a richer and brighter sound.

Erroll Garner's playing is always so joyful and delightful that it is impossible not to smile while listening to him. This CD reissue, which adds four fairly rare tracks (which are placed at the end of the set) to the original LP program, may not necessarily be the "Greatest Garner," but it ranks high. Recorded during 1949-1950 with one of two trios, Garner often sounds jubilant, particularly on the medium-tempo pieces, while putting a great deal of emotion into the occasional ballads. His renditions of "The Way You Look Tonight," "Confessin'," "Summertime," "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," and "Lullaby of the Leaves" are particularly memorable. Easily recommended to fans of the unique pianist. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

AMG Rating: 1965: Clark Terry & Bob Brookmeyer - The Power of Positive Swinging

In the mid-1960s, flugelhornist Clark Terry and valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer led a quintet whose rhythm section changed now and then. As expected, there was always plenty of interplay between the fluent horns and some sly examples of their humor. This CD reissue (the music has also been put out again by the Jazz Heritage label) matches C.T. and Brookmeyer with pianist Roger Kellaway (a bit of a wild card who throws in a few adventurous flights here and there), bassist Bill Crow and drummer Dave Bailey. Except for Kellaway, all of the musicians had previously played with Gerry Mulligan, and there is some of the feel of his quartet during these performances. Highlights include "Battle Hymn of the Republic," Illinois Jacquet's "The King" and the old Count Basie-associated riff tune "Just an Old Manuscript." ~ Review by Scott Yanow, AMG

AMG Rating: 1957: Clark Terry - Duke with a Difference

For this CD reissue of a Riverside set, trumpeter Clark Terry and some of the top Ellington sidemen of the period (trombonist Britt Woodman, altoist Johnny Hodges, tenor saxophonist Paul Gonsalves, Tyree Glenn on vibes, bassist Jimmy Woode, and drummer Sam Woodyard) perform eight songs associated with Duke, but with fresh arrangements. There is plenty of solo space for Terry, Gonsalves, and Hodges, and the arrangements by Terry and Mercer Ellington cast a new light on some of the warhorses; highlights include "C Jam Blues," "Cotton Tail," "Mood Indigo," and "Come Sunday." ~ Review by Scott Yanow, AMG.

The solo projects of Johnny Hodges were not so much individualistic divergences away from his duties with the Duke Ellington Orchestra, but served more as extensions of the vintage, classic style of jazz tailored to his personalized sound away from what he had to compete with sitting next to the raft of talent in Duke's big band. Working here in the mid-'60s with groups ranging from an octet to a 12-member (featuring nine extra tracks not included on the original 33 1/3 LP) or 15-piece group, Hodges showcases many of his original compositions. He primarily employs Ellington personnel, with the exception being the quite able Jimmy Jones at the piano on the majority of these selections. His son Johnny Hodges, Jr. plays drums on two tracks when Grady Tate or Gus Johnson sits out, while bass players chosen by the legendary alto saxophonist include the formidable Ernie Shepard and a young Richard Davis. These quite famous numbers are loaded with pungent solos by cream of the crop jazzmen such as trumpeter Cat Anderson, woodwind specialists Russell Procope and Jimmy Hamilton, the deeply soulful tenor saxophonist Paul Gonsalves, and nimble trombonist Lawrence Brown. If you are a devout fan, you'll easily recognize favorites like the harmony-strewn evergreen "Main Stem" with fluttering clarinet and a patented Anderson solo, the Billy Strayhorn ballad "A Flower Is a Lovesome Thing" where Hodges is fully featured, "Mood Indigo" where the group is stripped down to four horns in guarded repast, and the very slow "Jeep's Blue" as the piano of Jones takes center stage. Brown's introduction and theme for "Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me" sweetly showcases the underappreciated trombonist. Hodges wrote or co-wrote several of these tracks, including the lesser-known spiky-accented and vibrato-laden "Papa Knows" as offshoots of its precedent, "Mama Knows," and the two-note bass-heavy title track, delivered quicker than the established 4/4 rhythm. "Good Queen Bess" is a basic Count Basie-type bluesy theme, and there's the distinctly Ellingtonian blues "Little Brother" and the always rousing "Stompy Jones," where Procope and the gang trade lines profusely. It would be difficult to pick a favorite or a clunker, and you'd be hard-pressed to find anything more inspired or another project loaded with this much talent. Everybody knows Johnny Hodges and this stellar collection of all-stars, because they are absolutely the best at what they do. ~ Michael G. Nastos, All Music Guide

While one finds the clarinet less often in the new millennium, than say, the tenor sax, it no longer seems in danger of becoming extinct, thanks to practitioners like Buddy DeFranco. From "Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise," to the closing intensity of Charlie Parker's "Scrapple From the Apple," DeFranco, guitarist John Pizzarelli, bassist Martin Pizzarelli, pianist Ray Kennedy, and drummer Butch Miles show that even though the clarinet may be rooted in jazz past, it's far from old-fashioned. The set list includes lots of standards "Dancing in the Dark," "Poor Butterfly," and "Gone With the Wind" and two super upbeat pieces by DeFranco "I Lost the Blues," and the title cut. Lengthy cuts like "East of the Sun (And West of the Moon)" allow the clarinet, guitar, and piano plenty of solo time, while bassist Martin Pizzarelli and drummer Miles keep this outfit in a steady groove. The album also includes two nice vocals by John Pizzarelli on "Prisoner of Love" and "What Is This Thing Called Love?" It's easy to forget that clarinet practitioners like Tony Scott and DeFranco took the clarinet far beyond the swing familiarized by Benny Goodman and others. Cookin' the Books, however, will serve to freshen the memory in the most enjoyable way. ~ Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., All Music Guide

AMG Rating: Enrico Pieranunzi, Marc Johnson & Joey Baron - Play Morricone

Pianist Enrico Pieranunzi, in a trio with bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Joey Baron, explores ten songs from movies scored by Italian film composer Ennio Morricone. While none of the pieces are standards, the ten that were chosen are each easily adaptable to jazz. Ranging from romps to waltzes and mood pieces, the music is (not too surprisingly) often cinematic and episodic, but the songs fare well standing independent of the films. Several of the pieces deserve to be covered by other jazz musicians looking for fresh material. While Pieranunzi is the lead voice, Johnson and Baron make important contributions to the swinging music. Recommended. - Scott Yanow atAMG

In true "Play Morricone (bonus track)" is in matter of fact a completely different album when comparing it with the regular one. It was released in Italy one year before the standard one that has worldwide distribution and contains not one bur six different tracks from this one, not to mention the more attractive cover.

Focusing on all-original material, pianist Enrico Pieranunzi's Dream Dance proves that when there's the right chemistry, a group can retain it throughout the years, even if reconvening only occasionally. While not a regular working unit like Keith Jarrett's enduring Standards Trio with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette, Pieranunzi's trio with bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Joey Baron has been together almost as long. And while Jarrett continues to explore long-form interpretations of standards, Pieranunzi combines plenty of original music with the occasional standard and material from fellow Italians including Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota.

1961: Duke Pearson - Dedication!Artist: Duke Pearson
Album: Dedication!
Label: Original Jazz Classics
Year: 1961
Format: mp3@320 kbit/s
Time: 38:56
Size: 95 MB

Recorded for a small label that proceeded to go broke, Dedication! would not be released until nine years after its initial recording. This seems odd considering the all-star cast of players. Pianist Duke Pearson is joined by trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, baritone player Pepper Adams, trombonist Willie Wilson, bassist Thomas Howard, and drummer Lex Humphries on seven selections. The set kicks off with Tommy Flanagan's "Minor Mishap," an upbeat piece that brings forth nice solos from everyone. This might be Pearson's session, but everybody is given plenty of room to cut loose. Wilson, for instance, is featured for the length of "The Nearness of You" and for a great deal of "Time After Time." This is fortunate in retrospect; he made few recordings and would pass away in 1963, two years after this record was made. Pearson also turns in a number of nice solos. Like Hank Jones, his light touch serves him well on instrumentals like "Blues for Alvina" and "Time After Time." The performances by Hubbard and Adams are topnotch throughout; they turn in first-rate work on numbers like Donald Byrd's "Lex" and the Pearson original "The Number Five." An important factor in the success of this album is the unusual combination of trumpet, trombone, and baritone saxophone that creates a resonant, full sound. Pearson would make a number of other fine recordings for Blue Note during the '60s, but none finer than this one. Dedication! serves as a fine introduction to a talented pianist. ~ Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr.
