This outing by Jaki Byard's big band The Apollo Stompers does not quite live up to its potential. The 17-piece orchestra has few distinctive soloists (other than the pianist/leader) and all of the performances (which include three medleys) are quite brief; also the two vocals by Byard's daughters are just so-so. The real reason to acquire this admittedly spirited set is for the occasional (and always notable) piano solos.
Born: 15 June 1922 in Worcester, MA
