Album Review

Guitarist Jimmy Raney had lived in Europe for some time when he recorded this trio set with pianist Tommy Flanagan and bassist George Mraz, but he had lost none of his fire or drive. The quiet yet hard-swinging guitarist, still in prime form at age 58, performs his own "Ovals," an original by Mraz, two lesser-known Benny Golson tunes and the standards "I Could Write a Book" and "Everything I Love." The interplay between the three musicians is impressive, and the subtle creativity makes repeated listenings of the modern mainstream music quite valuable. Recommended.

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)...
