CD Reviews

This is the album that started me listening to JAZZ in 1960. | Murray, KY 42071 | 03/19/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been a JAZZ fan since 1960 and this is the album that started it all. If you like STARDUST it is worth the money right there. I feel Charlie Ventura never got the acclaim he deserved. Buy this and enjoy the best."
A rare treat: the great guitarist Billy Bean

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This mid-1950's recording includes what was likely the touring quartet for Charlie Ventura at the time that made a name, at least among his peers, for the young Philadelphia guitar genius, Billy Bean. Bean weaves a boppish filigree around these swing and classic jazz warhorses that provides hints of his inventiveness and virtuosity. If you're interested, more of Bean's playing can be found on the excellent "The Trio" Riverside/Fantasy CD. Also: the English StringJazz CD's of Bean/Pisano (late 1950's LA rehearsal tapes, mostly two guitars; amateur recordings by his musical partner, guitarist John Pisano)."
