CD Reviews

More Buck and Buddy from the 60's
William Faust | Columbus, Ohio | 07/28/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This disc is not quite as good as their other session "Blow the Blues" done at about the same time but the only thing less than perfect is the selection of tunes. Tate and Clayton work well together on this selection of standards and come close to the collaboration of Sweets Edison - Clayton's section mate in Basie's band - and Ben Webster entitled "Ben and Sweets." Relaxed, playful small group swing from two big band veterans. Recommended, but not a "classic"."
Very Listenable......

"in fact this cd serves as a good definition for mainstream. The opener, "High Life", the first of three originals, is a pretty good bop tune. The first of three standards, "When a Woman Loves A Man", follows next. This medium tempo ballad is my favorite because Buck displays a very lyrical aspect on both muted and open horn. The other two standards, "Thou Swell" and "Can't We Be Friends" follow. Both are very listenable with "Can't etc" making more of an impression with Buck opening and closing the tune muted with a nice middle solo by Tate. The last two originals, "Birdland Betty" and "Kansas City Nights", remind me, unsurprisingly, of some of the Basie small group sessions. This impression is further enhanced by Sir Charles Thompson's style, light fingered and sparing in notes.......again, reminiscent of Basie.Anyone liking mainstream, small groups, or fans of any of these artists should enjoy this cd."
