Album Review

One of the warmest ballad singers to mature during the 1950s, Johnny Holiday never became a major star but he worked steadily throughout the era. 'Holiday' for Lovers was originally released by the Mode label just before it went out of business, and it has been a true rarity ever since. Backed by an octet of West Coast all-stars arranged by Marty Paich, Holiday sounds at his very best, interpreting a set of slow and medium-tempo ballads with warmth, sensitivity, and a light swing. Holiday only sang music on a part-time basis after the music world changed in the 1960s, but in 1998 he re-emerged with his warm baritone intact and full of enthusiasm despite being 74 years old, still sounding very much in his prime as he entered his eighties. The reissue of 'Holiday' for Lovers, which has concise solos from many of the sidemen (most notably altoist Herb Geller and trumpeter Jack Sheldon), is a very welcome event.

There is not one throwaway in this collection. Johnny Holiday is right up there with singers like Johnny Desmond, and while not as jazzy as Mel Torme', he does have all the technique. If you like classy singers that can really handle standards in a magical way, this is a really great album to add to your collection Bob Rutkas

A longtime giant of the West Coast jazz landscape, Bob Enevoldsen trailed only Bob Brookmeyer as his generation's foremost practictioner of the valve trombone. Enevoldsen was born September 11, 1920, in Billings, MT. His Danish-born father was a professional violinist who conducted the orchestra at their local silent movie theater, and at age five Bob took up the instrument as well before moving to trombone several years later. Recurring lip troubles forced him to switch to clarinet and tenor saxophone...
