Album Review

Recorded two weeks after his other Steeplechase set, If I Had You, the legendary but always somewhat overlooked tenor saxophonist Brew Moore (a disciple of Lester Young) is heard taking extended solos on four numbers during this radio broadcast from Copenhagen's Montmartre Jazzhus. The Steeplechase CD features Moore along with pianist Atli Bjorn, bassist Benny Nielsen, and drummer William Schiopffe sounding in top form on his "Brew's Blues," the standard "I Should Care," "Manny's Tune" (based on "Indiana"), and particularly "In a Mellotone." This set (which gets the edge over If I Had You) serves as a strong introduction to the talented but generally forgotten Brew Moore.
