Album Review

With a light, airy voice à la Mildred Bailey and Blossom Dearie, although not as breathy as dear Blossom's, Terrie Richards Alden has put together a program designed to show her voice to its best advantage. With Warren Vache playing hot cornet, a swinging rendition of the first tune on the session, "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone," promises more than an hour of great music delivered by a very talented group of professionals who deliver on the promise. Warren Vache, sharing top of the bill on this session, is well-known to those who like their music to jump. His roots are in the traditionalist genre, having studied with Pee Wee Erwin and gaining early experience performing with Benny Goodman, Vic Dickenson, and Bob Wilber. He has been a leader since the mid-'70s. With Scott Hamilton, Vache was in the forefront of a revival of small swing jazz. Out of the Ruby Braff mold, Mr. Vache's cornet has a clear, bell-like tone which becomes a perfect counterpoint to Alden's voice. Hear their collaboration on "Just One of Those Things." His satiny playing behind Richards Alden's on "Gee Baby, Ain't I Good to You" recalls the lyrical, muted trumpet of Harry "Sweets" Edison playing behind Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and others. Vache vocalizes on "Talk to Me Baby," a cut where the whole cast has a lot of fun. The husband end of the team and, for this session, a member of the Vache quartet, Howard Alden does some significant soloing on several of the cuts. He and Terrie have a lot of fun with "Makin' Whoopee," where she takes some liberties with the words to discourage any husband thinking of straying, even a little. The guy on the bench is referred to as "some old judge who 'she' calls 'honey'." Prior to this album, Terrie Richards Alden has appeared in a supporting role on albums by Rex Allen, Butch Miles, and Harry Allen. Judging by the results on this, her first solo album, it could have been subtitled "It's About Time."
