"truly a musical feast...Gershwin via Matt Catingub"
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 11/28/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Concord Records presents Matt Catingub with his first album - "George Gershwin 100", and folks this is a real winner. Catingub who is a brilliant orchestrator and made is first road trip to Japan at age 17 with the Louie Bellson Big Band. Not only can Matt play piano, alto sax and sing...a triple-threat performer, but what an arranger, as you will hear on this album.Catingub gives Gershwin something he never achieved in his lifetime, genuine blues changes, which George alluded throughout his career...example - "BLUES FOR MR. G", is priceless. A few stand outs - "SOON", "FASCINATING RHYTHM" and "THERE'S A BOAT THAT'S LEAVIN' SOON FOR NEW YORK", finds Catingub multi-tracking his voice over six and seven-part harmonies into a "One-Man-hattan Transfer", what an awesome talent and performer we have here.Special guests: Louie Bellson "THE MAN I LOVE", Rosemary Clooney "I'VE GOT A CRUSH ON YOU", Michael Feinstein "HOME BLUES" & "SLAP THAT BASS", John Pizzarelli "LADY BE GOOD", every performance is an inspiration to this "Great American Composer" - GEORGE GERSHWIN...and Matt Catingub has got the rhythm and you can't take that away from him!Total Time: 64:50 on 15 Tracks...Concord Jazz CCD-4797...(1998)"
