CD Review: Patrick Cornelius - While We're Still Young

Patrick Cornelius (alt/sop/fl/comp)​​; Jason Palmer​ (tpt); John Ellis​ (ten/bs clt); Nick Vayenas​ (tmb); Miles Okazaki​ (gtr); Gerald Clayton​ (pno); Peter Slavov​ (bs); Kendrick Scott​ (dms).
Inspired by the poetry from When We Were Very Young, by A.A. Milne.
While I love this album, because of the backlog of CDs piling up, time and tide etc., I'm going to cop out and direct you to the Press Release. However, this isn't really  a cop out as I concur with everything they've written. 
This is a superb album. The writing is brilliant in a sort of contemporary Marty Paich, Gil Evans, Manny Alban way. Don't think this makes it in anyway dated! The solos are for today and if Whirlwind hadn't sent me 3 discs in the one package I'd have probably written a thesis on how this is as good an example of today's jazz writing (and soloing) as you will find out side of the [Paul] Edis household.

Patrick Cornelius - While We're Still Young was released yesterday on Whirlwind Records WR4682.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
