Bebop Spoken There

Belá Fleck: "...he [Chick Corea] brought out the best in musicians. Not only would you get to play with him, but you'd get to play with the best version of yourself." - (DownBeat April 2021).

CD Review: The Swing City Trio - What a Little Moonlight Can Do!

Steve Andrews (ten/clt); Roy Cansdale (bs); Roly Veitch (gtr/vcl).
A delightful little gem by three outstanding yet understated (and often underrated!) musicians.
On tenor Andrews takes a central path flanked by Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster to produce some of the best mid-period tenor solos around - and I don't mean around here - I mean around anywhere. Likewise his sound on an old plastic Boosey and Hawkes Regent clarinet indicates that that instrument was worthy of much more than the student market it was aimed at!
Steve even uses a tin whistle on Tishimingo Blues to great effect.
Roly, as well as his sensitive guitar chording, gently croons several of the songs he often features on gigs. In particular, I Wished on the Moon, I Saw Stars and The Touch of Your Lips stand out although, in truth, there aren't any 'throwaway tracks'.
Ably supported by Roy Cansdale's bass, this is one of those CDs that exude class and if you play it in the car make sure the seat recliners work you know What a Little Moonlight Can Do - you could hit lucky!
To purchase or to listen to soundbites...
Lance.
