CD Reviews

Very poor recording quality
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Unfortunately, the swinging arrangements and singing are defeated by the extremely poor recording quality. The bass sounds like a dull thud, hardly distinguisable from the bass drum. By far the worst recorded cd I've every purchased. What a shameful representation of such talented jazz artists. Momad is a label I will avoid in the future."
An Old Fan
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I have listen to Bill Henderson for years and he improves wuth the years. However I feel that an effort should be made to release his early works particularly the Album "Joey" that he cut in Japan."
Stick With BH and the OPT
(1 out of 5 stars)

"First off, this CD is inexcusably short, if I remember correctly something like 22 minutes in length. (I can't remember because I hardly ever play it anymore, and no CD buy-back store will even touch it!) Henderson is hoarse and oftentimes out of breath during the songs. The only bright spot is "Who Can I Turn To?" Otherwise, avoid this CD. Stick with Bill Henderson and the Oscar Peterson Trio (one of my favorites).But, hey, don't avoid the Monad label altogether. Granted, this one is poor, but their CD of "Joe Williams Live In Vegas" sounds great, swings like mad and is an absolute joy to listen to."
