商品説明

Drummer Oliver Jackson had one foot in each of the major jazz camps, bop and swing. Out of Detroit, he performed with some of the first-rate jazz artists from that city including Tommy Flanagan and Paul Chambers and worked with Eddie Locke and Yusef Lateef. But he also played with great swingsters and traditional jazzers like Lionel Hampton, Teddy Wilson, Charlie Shavers, andBuck Clayton and, if this album is any indication, that is where his loyalties were the strongest. This 1993 live concert was Jackson's last before his death the following year. Heading up a group of expert musicians of the same bent, this album provides more than 70 minutes of pulsating, rhythmic mostly jam session tempo jazz of the highest caliber. Both in ensemble and as soloists, each member of the group is at the top of his form, almost as if they had a premonition that the fine drummer was not to be around much longer. The group consists of veteran players like one of the giants of the English jazz scene, tenor man Danny Moss, pianist Brian Dee, and bassist Len Skeat, who are whipped together with those from later generations, like tenor sax player Harry Allen, reedman Antti Sarpila, and trumpet player Randy Sandke. Moss' wife, vocalist Jeanie Lambe, lends her vocal skills to Willow Weep for Me. All of the playing is driven by the Sid Catlett-like energy of Oliver Jackson's drums. No one cut stands out above the rest. Each of the tunes runs for enough time so that most or all of the instrumentalists can make their unique statement. One of the few ballads, What's New, gets a poignant trumpet reading from Sandke, with Dee's light fingered, flittering piano laying down a velvet backdrop. Stealin' Apples recalls Jackson's tenure with Benny Goodman, with Antti Sarpila taking the clarinet solo. The German label Nagel Heyer continues to release copious quantities of high-quality mainstream music played by major jazz performers. This live concert by Oliver Jackson is in keeping with the company's high standards and is recommended. ~ Dave Nathan, Rovi
