Product Description

AVID Jazz here presents four classic Terry Gibbs albums, including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. 'Swingin'; 'Terry Gibbs Plays The Duke'; 'More Vibes On Velvet' and 'Music From Cole Porters Can Can'. Our first selection 'Swingin' finds Mr Gibbs in the slightly unfamiliar territory of the big swing band! Using the finest New York arrangers including Manny Albam and musicians such as Bob Brookmeyer, Urbie Green, Don Elliott, Al Cohn and of course his regular pianist Terry Pollard, Gibbs whips up a storm! 'Terry Gibbs Plays The Duke' finds Terry back in quartet mode for a tasteful album of Ellington classics enhanced by the inclusion of the accordionist Pete Jolly alongside Gary Peacock or Leroy Vinnegar on bass and Gary Frommer on drums. For 'More Vibes On Velvet' the final paragraph from the original liner notes sums up the feeling of this second volume in the 'Vibes' series! 'Although Terry Gibbs presents a study in controlled intensity of mallets in motion, he unerringly conveys the impression of a jazzman singing to himself. The quality, rare as a Lawrence Welk scat chorus, is richly captured in this velvet -textured interlude'. Again we quote from the original liner notes for our final selection 'Music from Cole Porters Can Can'. 'In this album we hear the Gibbs interpretation of the Porter tunes, custom tailored in a small group context that never lets up swinging. The accent is on a small ensemble effect with jazz solos a-plenty' Featured musicians include Al McKibbon on bass, Frank Strazzieri on piano and Herb Ellis on guitar All four albums have been digitally re-mastered.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Barry McCanna TOP 500 REVIEWER on 5 Feb 2014
Format: Audio CD
Somewhat unusually for Avid, these four albums appear in the order in which they were recorded. A 19-piece orchestra (which included Bernie Glow, Ernie Royal, Bob Brookmeyer, Urbie Green, Al Cohn, Terry Pollard, and Osie Johnson) was deployed in October 1956 for “Swingin’”, an album which fully justifies its title. In contrast, a quartet was used for the February 1958 album “Terry Gibbs Plays The Duke”, with Pete Jolly on accordion (shades of Cornell Smelser), Leroy Vinnegar on bass and Gary Frommer on drums. This may be small group jazz, but it’s amazing how much depth of sound and variety of tone was created. “More Vibes on Velvet” followed in November, and the 9-piece band was conducted by Mel Lewis on drums, who also provided the arrangements for ten standards. I hesitate to describe this as smooth jazz, because nowadays that term denotes bland, which it’s not. Finally, a quintet including Herb Ellis on guitar, Frank Strazzieri on piano, Al McKibbon on bass and Frank Capp on drums produced the 1960 album “Music from Cole Porter’s Can Can”. It’s a lively ending to an excellent compilation.

Loved the 1st part of cd 1 the big band , but the rest for me just o.k . I would listen to them but I admit for me Terry is a big band guy. But that just my opinion I feel the same about Benny Goodman not keen on his smaller groups, but then I love my big bands.
