CD Reviews

Tasteful & swinging quartet set
J. Levinson | Media, PA USA | 01/28/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"On this quartet set, Cohn performs two originals and numbers by Johnny Mandel, Billy Strayhorn, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Kurt Weill and Gary McFarland. The then 56-year-old tenor is in fine form throughout, his rich tone seeming to only have deepened and mellowed with age. McFarland's "Blu Hodge" allows him to affect a thick, bluesy tone reminiscent of Johnny Hodges, and the piano and bass also get brief solos. Easily recommended to straight-ahead jazz fans. Al Cohn - Sax (Tenor)
Lou Levy - Piano
Monty Budwig - Bass
Jake Hanna - Drums"
