Bebop Spoken There

Jennifer Wharton: "People forget that the trombone is so glorious. It can be like going to church, or getting ready for battle. It can be a lot of things....For a longtime I was the only female trombonist in New York," - (DownBeat May 2021)

Album review: The David Anģel Jazz Ensemble - Out on the Coast

I'm not going to lay down chapter and verse on this one - it's a triple CD for goodness sake! 

Suffice to say that, if over the years, your tastes have leaned towards Miles' 1949 nonet, Gil Evans, Marty Paich or the Gerry Mulligan Concert Band then this is very much for you. The arrangements are as cool as a Pfizer vaccine on the rocks - neither shaken nor stirred. 

The soloists too are the perfect antidote to the lockdown blues. Cipriano's alto on Prelude to a Kiss adds a new dimension to the Ellington/Hodges classic. Carr's baritone solos, Dane's trumpet, Whitfield's trombone, Anģel and Jim Quam swapping tenor choruses are just some of the delights to savour - not forgetting to mention the gorgeous sax section sounds that pepper the charts.

More info on the graphic.
Highly recommended.
Lance.
