The overall impact of Rugolo’s compositions and arrangements was bound up with his fresh and intriguing approach, both in his thematic material and in the flamboyant yet tasteful tone colors he employed. “Pete is a master of his craft,” affirmed his former boss Stan Kenton. His imagination roved to the horizons of the possible, and this 2-CD release reveals in brilliant stereo the astonishing variety of instrumental sounds at the disposal of great jazz musicians.

Everyone and their uncles were busy cranking out Ellington albums in 1999 – usually with the same imaginative titles ("A Tribute, "Our Tribute, " etc., etc.) – but this anthology has quite a few individual coups that stand out from the pack.

Given EMI's and Sony's ambitious Pink Floyd reissue program in 2011, a project of this type was inevitable. All the catalog selections listed here will be familiar to Floyd fans, but it should be noted that any jazz approach to the music in question should be given proper consideration in terms of pitch, time (as in real rhythm), and dynamic. Unfortunately, the Smooth Jazz All Stars provide none of these elements, and the way they treat this material sounds pathetic. They are like a group of high-school amateurs just out of band class and learning to play popular music from charts. It would be great to hear some contemporary jazz masters collaborate on Pink Floyd's music, since so much of it lends itself to the form.

Label: Classic Jazz | Rel:1979

This session for the French Black & Blue label (which was released domestically on an LP by Classic Jazz) features an all-star swing sextet comprised of trumpeter Wallace Davenport, trombonist Vic Dickenson, tenor saxpohonist Buddy Tate, pianist Claude Hopkins, bassist Arvell Shaw and drummer Cozy Cole. They perform swing and Dixieland standards along with a feature for Cole and Shaw on the more recent "Eva." Other highlights include "I Never Knew I Could Love Anybody," "Linger Awhile" and "Farewell Blues." Nothing too surprising occurs but these highly expressive players come up with consistently colorful ideas that should please mainstream fans.

The Knickerbocker All Stars are a group of extremely talented blues musicians who have been in the business for decades. Members of the band have played with such notable performers as Freddie King, Robert Cray, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Roomful of Blues as well as their own bands. Every song on the CD was carefully selected to emulate the great blues front-men, backed by a full horn section with bluesy and boogie woogie piano. Bob Christina was working as the drummer in the blues band Ricky King Russell and the Cadillac Horns. With Bob’s efforts we were able to bring together the Knickerbocker All Stars…

"Go Back Home to the Blues" is the second Knickerbocker All-Stars record, building on the enthusiastically received "Open Mic at the Knick". Once again the deep pool of New England blues talent has provided knockout versions of blues and R&B classics, this time adding some new songs which are perfect fits stylistically. The Knickerbocker All-Stars are celebrated veterans and masters of their craft. Original Roomful of Blues members and other Roomful alumni, members of the Duke Robillard Band, Sugar Ray and the Bluetones, and vocalists Willie J. Laws and Brian Templeton all make a powerful blend…
