Great big band jazz

Vivaldi55

Live 1959 recording with such Hollywood greats as Al Porcino, Ray Triscari, Conte Candoli, Stu Williamson, Bob Enevoldsen, Bill Holman, Med Flory, Joe Maini, Pete Jolly and Mel Lewis, just to name a few. Most arrangements by Bill Holman. Also a few by Bob Brookmeyer, Al Cohn, Marty Paich and Manny Albam. Obviously, the recorded sound betrays the age of the album, but the playing is tight and edgy and the band is definitely enjoying themselves. Every one of Gibbs' Dream Band albums is super and easily competes well with more recent recordings. This is some of the greatest big band jazz on emusic.

They Say All Music Guide

The music on this CD, not released for the first time until 1986, features the formerly little-known Terry Gibbs Big Band, an orchestra that worked fairly regularly in Los Angeles from 1959-1962. The repertoire is primarily swing-era standards, but the arrangements (by Bill Holman, Bob Brookmeyer, Al Cohn, Marty Paich, and Manny Albam) are fairly modern for the time; the all-star group’s ensembles are tight and such colorful soloists as vibraphonist Gibbs, valve trombonist Bob Enevoldsen, trumpeters Stu Williamson and Conte Candoli, tenorman Bill Holman, pianist Pete Jolly, and altoist Joe Maini are heard from. There would be five CDs released by this band; this is an excellent set to start with. – Scott Yanow
