In spite of the misleading CD-title misleading,
this is a good purchase. Tracks 1-16 make a fine Sammy Price solo-piano album, with songs written by Waller, Fields-McHugh, Hammerstein II-Kern, Gershwin, Handy, Price himself and others.

On the tracks 17-24 Sammy really plays Gershwin, with Doc Cheatham joining him on some of the numbers; my favorites are "Embraceable you" (where Doc's horn sounds both sonorous and low-down dirty) and "Rhapsody in Blue", a witty and concise 3'10'' version (quite in tune with the rest of the CD), a beautiful gershwinesque gem with Doc putting in some real trumpet passion, replacing the entire orchestra...

So, if you're into buying Price&Cheatham's album, the Gitanes company is cheating you, but Price's solo performances are witty, blue and swinging, so you will probably not regret adding them to your jazz and blues collection. Doc's contributions are cream on the top of the cake.

Actually, this is a Sammy Price album, with some Doc Cheatham 11 Mar. 2009

High Art 25 April 2012

Oh, what glory! As the title indicates, pianist Sammy Price plays the most popular music of the Gershwin brothers. Price demonstrates the breath and width of his talent in the way that he rises to meet the occasion. Along such lines, this isn't whiskey soaked music from a Bourbon Street bar. Instead, these are the elegant sounds one would expect to hear in a concert hall. With this project, Sammy Price downplays the barrelhouse and plays with a classical sensibility. That's not to say that the Blues is left out this performance. Far from it, Price takes Gershwin's ideas of what Black America is supposed to sound like and expresses it with authenticity. To a certain extent, this music had been waiting to be played by a musician with both Price's technical abilities and his boogie-woogie, jump blues background. Indeed, when Gershwin comes to mind, most think of a full symphony orchestra. No orchestra is needed as Sammy Price is able to express all of the beauty that is contained in these wonderful songs. It brings to mind the stunning recordings that the original artist made when "Gershwin played Gershwin." Similarly, the vast majority of "Sammy Price Plays George Gershwin" features solo piano, spread out over two sessions in 1956 and 1958. Doc Cheatham only plays trumpet on a handful of these songs. The duo contributions add variety for variety sake on a release that is otherwise a great solo effort. When it comes to the selections, the standards are all here including 'Lady Be Good,' 'The Man I Love,' 'I Got Rhythm,' 'Summertime' and 'Rhapsody In Blue.' Now for the dirty little secret. Most of these songs aren't by the Gershwin brothers. The misleading advertising is easily forgivable considering how the Price originals and other covers sound so inspired by Gershwin. Indeed, the album has a unifying sound and sensibility. Gitanes has liberated another European jewel from their vaults. Whether to enthusiasts of George Gershwin or Sammy Price, this eighty-eight key adventure is deeply rewarding.
