The Band Swings from First Note to Last

1957 marked the 15th anniversary of the death of the remarkable trumpeter and bandleader Bunny Berigan. To pay homage to Bunny, RCA Victor (Berigan's label for most of his recorded output) decided to bring Ruby Braff and seven mainstream veterans and newcomers to the studio and perform nine tunes associated with Berigan including I Can't Get Started, Marie and Downhearted Blues.. He is joined by Pee Wee Russell, Dick Hafer, Benny Morton, Nat Pierce, Steve Jordan, Walter Page (one of his last recordings) and Buzzy Drootin. The band swings from first note to last and stretches out soulfully on each tune (six of which are over six minutes). Did I Remember?, a bonus track originally issued only on a compilation, completes the sessions.

  Good Day
The rhythm section rocks! I'd sound good on a broken kazoo in front of these guys. Braff on a great day, the whole band is inspired.
 
  Great set
This set has early jazz numbers with modern sound. I kick myself for not getting the Bunny Berigan set when it was in print.
 
  The american bass players
I would like to know if Mosaic has the bass players records. Like Milt Hinton. If you have, please send me your catalogue with them all. Ana

Henry Threadgill (8 CDs)

These eight CDs are filled with music that was carefully imagined, deeply felt, and wonderfully executed. The period begins in 1978 with Open Air Suit, hailed for its complexity and for the uncanny way musicians could instantly communicate through improvisation,

Joe Pass (5 CDs)

“Some of these quartets – particularly with gospel-charged pianist Les McCann-are as ingratiating and ear-friendly as any first-rate straight-ahead jazz you’re likely to hear.” - Jeff Simon, Buffalo News

Oliver Nelson (6 CDs)

“Oliver Nelson was perhaps the greatest jazz orchestrator and composer of the postwar era. This set which contains 15 albums and 100 tracks is a testament to Nelson’s frenetic activity and to the quality of his music” – Will Friedwald, The New York Sun
