CD Reviews

A Great Bit of Small-group Swing
Steve Emerine | Tucson, AZ United States | 01/18/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Pianist Johnny Varro has enlisted top musicians like saxophonists Ken Peplowski and Tommy Newsom, trombonist Dan Barrett and trumpeter Randy Sandke for this swinging hour-plus of small-group jazz. The 15 tunes by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Benny Carter, Al Cohn, Tadd Dameron, Charlie Shavers, Anton Dvorak, Benny Moten, Duke Ellington and Varro himself have never sounded better. It's another step in the career of this keyboard veteran, who started as a teenager at Eddie Condon's New York jazz club and now is a popular regular on the traditional jazz festival circuit.Drummer Joe Ascione and bassist Frank Tate round out the rhythm section."
