Underrated Genius 27 Dec. 2002
By Wojciech Karolak - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Many years ago I had this on vinyl LP. Someone borrowed it from me and I never got it back. So it's gone. I am a jazz musician, 62, kind of known in my country. To me "Introducing" always was, and still is a quintessence of a bebop big band idea. It is hot, tasty and full of that beautiful flavour of music from early 60thies. Sometimes it has a lot in common with Thad Dameron's moods. In some aspects it may also be compared with Thad Jones & Mel Lewis Band, but the difference is that "Intoducing" is an inimitable "real Blue Note", with its choice of funkiest musicians and a genius touch of a jazziest sound engineer ever; Rudy Van Gelder. Overlooked by many - or maybe issued without promotion it deserved, it is to me one of the most important records in jazz history. No other big band thing sounded like this. It's been one of the kind. Those who like jazz sound like jazz should take a moment and listen how Mickey Rocker plays his [rear-end] off obviously excited by being part of a band as they set fire doing "New Girl". Great, great record!
I wish I knew how to buy it (and many other CDs from CDNOW). In Warsaw, Poland, where I live bank clerks don't even know what International Money Order means. Would you believe it? On the other hand if I type my Visa number and click "submit" I only get error messages. For those who don't need to worry how to make a payment I can only say nine bucks for "Introducing" is a joke. I would pay much more to be only able to get it.

2 LP'S Worth on 1 CD 10 Nov. 2007
By John M. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
To make a long story short, 6 tracks from Duke's 2nd and last Big Band session- NOW HEAR THIS-are also included. The Polish gentleman is right New Girl is a great swinging original. Other great Duke Pearson originals- not included here- are My Girl Shirl from Donald Byrds- BYRD IN FLIGHT and Each Time I Think Of You from Donalds THE CAT WALK. Jackie McLean has the powerful opening solo on the 1'st and it's Pepper Adams who delivers a well prepared blockbuster leading off on the 2'nd

Time After Time is KILLER! 24 May 2012
By Daniel M. Feldman - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Duke Pearson's soaring, majestic and monumental arrangement of "Time After Time" on this album is one of the most heartfelt and emotionally moving big band arrangements I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. In fact, I bought this CD just for that one awesome track. The remainder of this disc is good, too, especially the swinging and creative take on "A Taste of Honey," but nothing really compares to "Time After Time."

Joe Shepley's trumpet solo on this track is stunning, and man, when this guy plays he just SAILS. Shepley had it all: beautiful tone, creative ideas, and he played with a warmth and feeling that seems to be lacking among the prominent trumpet players of today. Yes, Wynton Marsalis and Roy Hargrove, to name just two, have loads of technique and talent, but where's the WARMTH in their playing? What ever happened to Mr. Shepley, anyway? He was a hell of a trumpet player!

Also recommended: Duke's Sweet Honey Bee CD. Dig it!
Duke Pearson possessed the best of what the very best of our Master Meastro's ... 26 July 2015

Format: Audio CD
Genius Personified!!!!!!!!!!

Duke Pearson possessed the best of what the very best of our Master Meastro's possessd in abundance, sheer unadulterated brilliance. As a result of his respect for the masters who preceeded him, he was able to release the great influences of Ellington, Strayhorn, Gerald Wilson, Count Basie, Fletcher Henderson, Ernie Wilkins and all the masters into one magnificent embroidered tapestry of exquisite artwork. He also possessed the unique ability of Ellington, Wilson and Basie to attract and maximize the talents of the most brilliant musicians on the planet to give their hearts and souls to the integrity of the music. What a gifted man. So terribly underrated and underappreciated. What a magnificent arranger/composer/instrumentalist/producer. RIP Duke Pearson.

Sincerely, Salubriousjazz
A leader in the 60s Big Band Renaissance 20 April 2014
By Jeffrey Tedford - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Like his contemporary, Oliver Nelson, Pearson was a master of dynamic arrangements. Blessed with a crew of gifted soloists like trumpeters Randy Brecker, Burt Collins,, Marvin Stamm, drummer Mickey Roker, saxophonists Frank Foster, Lew Tabackin, Pepper Adams, trombonists Garnet Brown and Julian Priester, this band swings as if its been playing together for years. The dates included in this collection never waiver in there commitment to excellence.
By the way, if you don't own the "Live" Baltimore 1969 date by this same group (also available through Amazon) you're really missing something special.
