Album Review

The great bebop baritonist Serge Chaloff is featured in two different Boston sessions on this excellent CD. Six selections showcase him in a quintet actually led by altoist Boots Mussulli and also including Russ Freeman on piano; "You Brought a New Kind of Love," "Oh Baby" and "All I Do Is Dream of You" are among the better tunes. The remainder of this release has six titles (and five previously unreleased alternate takes) from a Chaloff nonet date that also includes trumpeter Herb Pomeroy, altoist Charlie Mariano, and pianist Dick Twardzik. The three versions of "The Fable of Mabel" are each rewarding. This CD is easily recommended to fans of cool-toned bop who do not already own Serge Chaloff's very complete Mosaic box set.
