What can you say about a recording arranged by Don Sebesky, produced by Rudy Van Gelder with Jim Hall, Ron Carter, Roland Hanna, Steve Gadd, Chett Baker and Paul Desmon except that it is one of a kind, outstanding. The highlight is Concierto De Aranjuez. The feeling and expression by each musician individually and in suport of the group can be felt in every note and phrase. Most of the players are gone now and have yet to be replaced.
Originally recorded in 1975, Concierto was a project started by Don Sebesky and Jim Hall. In its time, it didn't receive widespread acceptance at first but was later to be a much sought after recording. I was able to find a used LP that I treasure to this day. It is nice to hear the recording without the expected pops and scratches although I sometimes almost miss them.
Thanks to whoever decided to re-release this treasure.
This is amazing!
This album was my first experience of jazz.
It was happy meeting.
I strongly recommend this.
This is something else!!!
Concierto: Among the very best
The interplay and sensitivity between the musicians on "Concierto" is of the same caliber as you find with Miles and his boys on "Kind of Blue". I have been listening to both since the vinyl days; they are eternally new, always heartfelt, and should be in the core of any collection. Listen often, listen close, allow no distractions, share them both with your intimates.
