CD Reviews

Goodman's great small group sessions...
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These 14 tracks are NOT radio broadcasts, as the other reviewer seems to think. This is a budget CD of some of the same material as the RCA CD Benny goodman AFTER YOU'VE GONE: THE TRIOS & QUARTETS, buy that if you can, if you can't find it, buy this. These are wonderful jazz oriented trio & quartet sessions featuing Gene Krupa on drums, and Lionol Hampton on vibes. All improvised and wondeful(though this hophodge Laserlight compilation is not as complete as the RCA one) This CD leaves off a few essential tracks, and two Helen Ward vocals. Though still great music."
"a jazz conversation"
Joseph J. Pasko | Albany, NY United States | 07/06/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"as much as I enjoy Big Band jazz (by Goodman, as well as other
bandleaders) there is something incredibly special about Benny's small group recordings. Three or four musicians involved as equal particpants in a jazz coversation - and a swingin' conversation at that. Although bop was still a decade away - I think the bop pioneers of the mid-40's and their ensembles owed a debt to the Benny Goodman Quartet for laying out the blueprint for a group of musicians to mutually improvise, communicate with, and inspire each other."
Great Tunes - lousy liner notes
S. Dudley | 04/21/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Agree with others - great Goodman trio and quartet cuts, but better quality on earlier release. Also, liner notes contain many mistakes: songs misnamed, credits wrong, misspellings etc."
