CD Reviews

Stellar Jazz - Exceptional Discipline and Musicality
One-eyed Teacher | San Rafael, CA | 09/03/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This ensemble separates itself from the sea of self-indulgent mediocrity masquerading as jazz. The care in selecting repertoire and arrangements and the well-focused rehearsal are evident in this pastiche of jazz standards and new creations.The arrangements (including several by FF&C's lead trombonist, Chris Braymen) reflect understanding of the breadth and potential of the "big band" format. The sock and pow, reminiscent of Billy May at his prime, are enhanced by harmonic inventions worthy of Stan Kenton at his best.I hope to find the band's first two albums which appear to be out of print."
Ray Brown's fantastic arrangements....

"Out of Nowhere, with its quirky time signature changes is very amusing. I spoke to the arranger, Ray Brown after classes at Cabrillo College, and he told me that it was a spoof designed to reflect a less than steller tenor sax player's sight reading abilities. I laughed out loud when I heard it. You should all know that Ray Brown has a recent release (which amazon doesn't carry yet) called: Ray Brown's Great Big Band "Reflections of Point Lobos". This album has the BEST big band arrangements that I've EVER heard. If you want, you can email me at djs@cruzio.com and i'll hook you up. I've had my copy for 2 years, and I still haven't taken it out of my 5 disc CD player....how's that for an endorsement!"
