CD Reviews

Jazz greats dominate classical players
Paul Duynhouwer | Boca Raton, Florida United States | 01/19/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"great solo work by the underrated Lucky Thompson,plus Jay Jay Johnson, Stan Getz, Aaron Sachs and Tony Scott makes this album a joy to behold. The quasi classical pieces composed and/or arranged by Gunther Schuller and John Lewis feature rather stiff ensemble playing and harp strumming but these shortcomings are easily overcome by the sloists. Thompson's solo on Django has to rank among the greatest ever recorded, Stan Getz is his usual lyrical self while Jay Jay excels for his logic and clarity. A beautiful album of the fifties."
