Album Review

At a 2004 West Coast jazz festival presented by producer Ken Poston, altoist Phil Woods was featured performing Marty Paich arrangements with the Los Angeles Jazz Orchestra. The re-created charts were originally recorded by Art Pepper in the 1950s, with the majority drawn from the famous Art Pepper + Eleven album. Woods has a different sound and a slightly different style than Pepper, but his playing is certainly complementary and a logical choice for this project. Pianist Christian Jacob directed the 12-piece orchestra and, although his verbal introductions are sometimes a bit awkward, the music works quite well. Woods, who takes a rare clarinet solo on "Anthropology" (which he jokes about), is in top form throughout. Highlights include "Groovin' High," "Walkin' Shoes," "Bernie's Tune," and "Shaw 'Nuff." Fans of West Coast jazz will enjoy this intriguing reinterpretation of Marty Paich's classic charts.

Customer Reviews

Great album, but try the original!

This is a wonderful re-visiting of some fantastic charts written by Marty Paich for the 1959 album Art Pepper + 11. That album stands out as one of the finest recordings ever of West coast 'little big band' jazz, with incredible improvisation by Pepper and a band on fire. The Phil Woods take seems more subdued, if at times more polished than the original. Enjoy this, but don't deprive yourself of the full-strength original recording

Phil Woods...

is easily the one of the best Sax players ever. His genius is on full display here. Donna Lee, and Airegin are certainly highlights
