CD Reviews

All-Star Front Line
Christopher Byars | New York City | 02/24/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You just can't beat this sound and feeling. Art Farmer and Gigi Gryce are a perfect match. They are an ideal tonal and stylistic compliment to each other, and conceptually are so in their element on "Farmer Met Gryce".

"A Night At Tony's" gives a great example of the essence of Gigi Gryce's composition and outlook on music - brilliantly jubilant, direct, innovative and yet not beyond the ear's reach. "Blue Lights" is a delightful minor blues; fans of "Blues and the Abstract Truth" should check that out. "The Infant's Song" is a wonderful show of arranging techinque - Gigi Gryce's counterline doesn't interfere with the tender melody played by Art Farmer - a difficult feat at a slow, exposed tempo. A must-listen for any alto/trumpet frontline."
GOOD SOUND QUALITY

"Two 10 inch Lp's on 1 CD with suprisingly good sound quality for the early '50s. Believe what the other reviewers say. It's a good one,as is EVENING IN CASABLANCA with Duke Jordan on piano. For more Gigi see Mal Waldron- MAL 1- with Idrees Sullieman on trumpet. Check out- MAL 2-while your at it. Hear Jackie McLean blow Coltrane away on Falling in Love with Love.--Art Farmer is at his brassiest best on the Gerry Mulligan pianoless quartet session WHAT IS THERE TO SAY. Art may blow Chet away this once, but Mulligan's deep almost Adams like tone is a good counter part."
