Milt Buckner • Rockin’ With Milt

Milt Buckner’s Hammond organ sound is quite different than others who followed in his footsteps. His choppy two-hand chord approach, thorny and biting sound, and his regular usage of a bass player identified him as a raw industrialist, coming from the Midwest hearths of St. Louis and Detroit. Buckner has largely been ignored as a […]

Paul Desmond • From The Hot Afternoon

All the featured performances are excellent, Paul Desmond’s playing is superb, taking a little more of a back seat, but with some beautiful, memorable phrasing. Not mentioned in other reviews are three vocal tracks featuring Wanda de Sa, “To Say Goodbye”, “Circles” and “Crystal Illusions”. In “To Say Goodbye”, she was forced by the recording […]

Stan Getz • Big Band Bossa Nova

Review by Richard S. Ginell Fresh from the sudden success of Jazz Samba and “Desafinado,” Stan Getz asked the 28-year-old, strikingly gifted Gary McFarland to arrange a bossa nova album for big band as a follow-up. Getz is always his debonair, wistful, freely-floating self, completely at home in the Brazilian idiom that he’d adopted only […]
