Album Review

In Good Company makes a nice companion piece to Warne Marsh's Back Home, another mid-'80s Criss Cross date reissued in 2001. Ted Brown and guitar legend Jimmy Raney are essentially co-leaders here, teaming with a stellar rhythm section in pianist Hod O'Brien, bassist Buster Williams, and drummer Ben Riley. The CD adds five alternate takes to the original seven selections. There's some good Tristano-oriented bop writing here, particularly Brown's opening "Blimey," based on "Limehouse Blues." ~ David R.

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s

Jimmy Raney was the definitive cool jazz guitarist, a fluid bop soloist with a quiet sound who had a great deal of inner fire. He worked with local groups in Chicago before spending nine months with Woody Herman in 1948. From then on he was in the major leagues, having associations with Al Haig, Buddy DeFranco, Artie Shaw, and Terry Gibbs. His work with Stan Getz (1951-1952) was historic, as the pair made for a classic musical partnership. Raney was also very much at home in the Red Norvo Trio (1953-1954)...
