CD Reviews

Excellent small group swing sides

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Chronological Classics CD collects just about all of Pete Brown's commercially released 78 rpm recordings under his own name. And they are terrific recordings at that. "Cannon ball," with Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet and Nora Lee King singing the vocal, swings mightily and is excellent. So too are "That's my weakness now" and "I may be wrong," both from a Keynote date done in 1944 with Joe Thomas on trumpet. Everything on this CD, however, gives pleasure; Pete Brown was a great alto saxophonist whose work should be better known."
