Album Review

Veteran arranger Gerald Wilson utilized a New York band full of all-stars for this very rewarding and memorable project. Three of the selections ("Dorian," "Ray's Vision at the U," and "Blues for Manhattan") form a suite called "The Diminished Triangle," which is based upon diminished chords and utilizes Wilson's eight-part harmony. Guitarist Russell Malone is showcased on the ballad "Musette," a remake of "Lomelin" pays tribute to a bullfighter in dramatic fashion, and such players as tenor saxophonist Kazumi Washington (an impressive new voice), pianist Renee Rosnes, trumpeters Jon Faddis, Jimmy Owens, and Sean Jones, and tenor man Ron Blake are among the many colorful soloists. But it is the enthusiastic arranger/bandleader who takes honors with his consistently inventive writing and (one imagines) enthusiastic conducting. Highly recommended.

Incredible. Hard swingin'

This album has everything- maybe his finest full length big band release. Some magic was happening during the sessions for this in NYC. At times insanely hard swinging, like on the opener- not one bum solo. Look at the cast of NYC's finest- Faddis is a freight train on lead trumpet, with standout solos from Renee Rosnes, Sean Jones, KAMASI Washington (typo in descr.), Steve Wilson, Ron Blake et al. When I say this is the most swinging, well constructed album of motivic and modal big band tunes i'm not exaggerating. and i've heard a ton of big band records. Peter Washington and Lewis Nash really hold it down. PICK THIS ONE UP, you won't be sorry. It is superior to the previous CD, new york, new sound. Musette is a ballad worth the price alone.

From time to time, Gerald Wilson seemed like one of Los Angeles' better-kept secrets, an unusually skillful, imaginative, and charismatic bandleader who hadn't received his due outside the West Coast. His arrangements were distinctive, often complex voicings and harmonies, rooted in swing and bop, yet always forward-looking and energetic in tone. He liked to play around with structures, which contributed to the restless quality in much of his music, and being a bullfight aficionado, he was one of...
