Album Review

Tenor saxophonist Billy Root is a bit of a neglected name in the jazz lexicon, having peaked in the public eye back in the '50s with some of the better-known big bands. Here he is joined on the front line by another neglected old-timer, trumpeter Vinnie Tanno, for this freewheeling jam. Together they do more than bring back memories. Whether lobbing shells or just playing it straight, Root and Tanno show the vibrancy and verve reminiscent of an earlier, innocent era, when joyous passion permeated every note. While not every piece succeeds, there is enough fine playing throughout to wonder where these fellows have been hiding all these years. The choice of tunes includes oldies such as "My Little Suede Shoes," "Scrapple Form the Apple," and "Donna Lee," each played with formidable hindsight.
