Album Review

Bucky Pizzarelli has been one of the most in-demand session musicians, but it's always a treat when he gets a record date of his own. Joining him for this studio date is his son (and fellow seven-string guitarist) John Pizzarelli, bassist Lynn Seaton, and drummer Bernard Purdie. The program is a varied one, drawing from standards popular during the swing era, jazz compositions from several decades, and even a surprise or two. Wild Bill Davis' "Azure Te" is a bit of an obscurity (recorded by the organist/composer when he toured with Duke Ellington in 1969). The Pizzarellis pick up the tempo a bit, with the father backed by his son's harmonics and adding Seaton's swinging arco bass solo. "A Little World Called Home" is a pretty ballad duet by the guitarists. Al Cohn's loping "Two Funky People" is a lyrical, understated gem from the cool era. Django Reinhardt's "Nuages" has long been a part of Bucky's repertoire and this performance is exceptional. The band also delves into standards that were popular with Benny Goodman (with whom Bucky toured numerous times). The only downside of this budget issue from LRC is the extremely sloppy spelling of composer names.

Customer Reviews

Good to the last drop!

Very good CD that will not disappoint. I was turned onto this style of swing by a friend and I have to tell you - give this a listen. Honeysuckle Rose is the real "hit" from this CD and you can't miss Stompin' At The Savoy (great scat in the middle of it). If you have a thing for great guitar and bass with a movin' beat than this can't be beat. Very well recorded.

Straight ahead and Swing'n

If you love great jazz guitar playing and great ensembles, this is a must have. It's melodic, it swings and the energy is strong throughout. The players here combine thier talents beautifully. Buy it, play it and understand what Nirvana in the world of music truely means.
