Album Review

This release from Rick Fay finds him mostly playing tenor (with one appearance on clarinet and a few on soprano), often in the style of Bud Freeman. The octet, which includes either Jon-Erik Kellso or Peter Ecklund on cornet, trombonist Dan Barrett, clarinetist Bobby Gordon, pianist Keith Ingham, guitarist Marty Grosz (who sings on "Keepin' Out Of Mischief Now"), bassist Greg Cohen and drummer Hal Smith, would be difficult to improve upon in this style. The music is similar to that of Bud Freeman and His Orchestra of 1939, and various 1940s Eddie Condon bands. The individual features (particularly Barrett on a slower than usual "Margie," and Gordon on "Mandy, Make Up Your Mind") are excellent, but it is the full band tracks that are particularly stirring. Most memorable are "Love Is Just Around The Corner," "Riverboat Shuffle," and "Eccentric Rag." Highly recommended to trad and swing jazz fans.


Genre: Jazz

Unrecorded until 1989, Rick Fay has made up for lost time with many fine records for the Arbors label. He had worked for the Disney music department for 24 years (in California and later in Florida), played regularly at Disney World, and in freelance jobs with Wild Bill Davison, Pete Dailey, the Firehouse Five Plus Two, and others. On the many Arbors releases, Rick Fay has had the opportunity to record frequently...
