Worth getting for Adrian Rollini's hot solos...
roarin20sGuy | 09/22/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Though Fred Elizalde & His Anglo American Band, weren't as hot as say McKinney's Cotton Pickers, or Jelly Roll Morton & His Red Hot Peppers, however they we're a very jazz oriented dance band, and they had the greatest bass sax player ever Adrian Rollini, who gets lot's of solo space on this generally excellent and remastered CD. This set of good 20's jazz is recommended mostly to Rollini collectors and 20's hot music fanatics."
Too Hot For The Savoy
Barry McCanna | Normandy, France | 08/15/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have to confess to a certain reservation regarding Fred Elizalde's Savoy recordings. On the one hand, his contract was not renewed, allegedly because he refused to tone down his performances to suit the patrons of that establishment. On the other hand, he recorded such limpid tunes as Diane, Chopinata, and Roam On, My Little Gypsy Sweetheart. None of which feature here, mercifully. Instead we get such standards as Tiger Rag, Sugar, My Pet, and Nobody's Sweetheart, many of which feature that giant of the bass saxophonist Adrian Rollini, who could manipulate that mammoth of an instrument like few others. I assume that the Trumbauer-influenced saxophonist is Bobby Davis, and mention should be made of the presence on the later sides of Mario Lorenzi, who recorded the first hot harp solo with Jay Whidden (predating Caspar Reardon by some years). The other item of interest is the later joining of guitarist Al Bowlly, who contributes four vocals, including the ultra-rare Metropole recording of "After The Sun Kissed The World Goodbye".

Swing Jazz

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great music of the past - Dont lose it. This is the music the Big Band era came from. 1920's REAL jazz ; swing bands, stride piano, and Dixieland all had it's beginnings with this music. Fred Lives!"
