They Say All Music Guide

The packaging for this reissue CD could be better (it leaves out the personnel listing and even the recording date) but the Capp/Pierce Juggernaut is heard throughout the live session in fine form. The main soloists in the 1978 version of the 17-piece orchestra are pianist co-leader Nat Pierce, trumpeter Al Aarons, trombonist Buster Cooper, tenors Bob Cooper and Herman Riley, and altoist Marshall Royal; the other co-leader, Frank Capp, has a drum feature on “Capp This.” The Count Basie sound-alike band (which sounds surprisingly like Duke Ellington’s on “Fiesta in Brass”) performs Pierce’s arrangements with swing and spirit. An added plus is that Joe Williams sits in for “Joe’s Blues” (during which he sings some of his favorite blues stanzas) along with a throwaway version of “What the World Needs Now Is Love.” – Scott Yanow
