CD Reviews

One of McShann's best
Bomojaz | South Central PA, USA | 10/18/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Recorded originally for MJR in 1972, this is one of Jay McShann's best albums. Tune selection is excellent, and Buddy Tate and Julian Dash, two very robust tenor players, are terrific.

DOGGIN' AROUND starts things off in a swinging manner. A major highlight is McShann's HOOTIE'S IGNORANT OIL, a 12-bar blues, again taken up tempo, with real hot playing; Gus Johnson's playing of the center ring of his cymbal is very effective. Buddy Tate plays clarinet briefly on BLUE & SENTIMENTAL, too briefly - he has a very warm clarinet sound. 'FORE DAY RIDER is a slow blues with McShann singing the vocal as usual - he's recorded this tune many times; it's one of his best.

This is a most impressive CD. McShann enthusiasts will love it, although anyone with a liking for small-group, blues-inflected swing won't go wrong with this CD, either."
Jumpin' the blues !!

"A swinging good time with Jay McShann, Buddy Tate,Julian Dash,and the great swing drummer Gus Johnson. With the years of experience this group has it's no wonder the music is tight and swinging. Highly recommended to swing fans."
