4.0 out of 5 stars From N.Y to L.A. 28 Jun 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is really a 5 star record but is marred by some fuzzy sound on parts of Jazz Studio 2.
Studio 1. was recorded in New York in October 1953 and features Joe Newman, Bennie Green, Franks Foster, Paul Quinichette, Hank Jones, Johnny Smith, Eddie Jones and Kenny Clarke. This award winning session is quite simply the best Jam Session I have ever heard. Everyone is on top form with Bennie Green outstanding. The nice thing is that they perform as a team not just as individuals.
Studio 2 was recorded in L.A. in June 1954. It features Don Fagerquist, Milt Bernhart, John Graas, Herb Geller, Jimmy Giuffre, Marty Paitch, Howard Roberts, Cutis Counce and Larry Bunker. This is "West Coast Jazz" at its best with, once again, averyone in top form. Herb Geller is the stand out soloist. I had not realised what a brilliant player he was. Am I alone in thinking that he was overlooked in the appreciation of the West Coast movement?
Studio 1 covers the first two tracks with Studio 2. performing the other 6. - John. P.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reunited with an old friend 20 Mar 2013
By RayB
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Many years ago 'Jazz Studio 1' was highly recommended to me by a work colleague but when I tried to buy a copy I was told it was out of print. Even Doug Dobell's couldn't supply a copy. I eventually found a decent secondhand copy in a junk shop!
I'm so glad to have been able to get this on CD together with the John Graas 'Jazz Studio 2' but it's really all about 'Jazz Studio 1' for me. An outstanding jam session featuring excellent solos from all the musicians on the date, considered but also exciting, it ranks alongside the Buck Clayton jam sessions as examples of how this sort of session can excite without losing sight of tasteful improvising. This album has been a favourite of mine for nearly 50 years and finding it on Cd has been like finding an old friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars At long last available 21 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The advent of the LP was heaven's gift to jazz and the 1950s became a golden age for jam sessions. Fortunately those under the leadership of Buck Clayton are still readily available but the 9 sessions supervised by Norman Granz are now very hard to find and consequently prohibitively expense. For some extraordinary reason a masterpiece of the genre was missing from the CD catalogue for far too many years but is now available.

Recorded in 1953 and received with much critical acclaim Jazz Studio 1 consists of extended versions of Tenderly and Let's Split. Four of the eight participating musicians enjoyed lengthy careers with Count Basie comprising the trumpet lead of Joe Newman, the contrasting styles of tenor players Frank and Paul Quinichette and the solid bass of Eddie Jones. Excellent solo work is provided by trombonist Bennie Green, who certain reviewers consider the stand-out performer. The rhythm section benefits from the elegant piano work of Hank Jones and the solid backing put down by Kenny Clarke on drums. A surprise addition is Johnny Smith, masquerading as Sir Jonathan Gasser, who in addition to providing a Freddie Green style lift, also provides some deftly commissioned guitar solos.

Also on the CD is Jazz Studio 2 designed as a homage to the seriously short lived John Grass, who was in the vanguard of establishing the French horn as a jazz instrument. The performers, which includes Jimmy Giuffre on various reeds, create enjoyable and undemanding music but the session lacks the drive and solo contributions of Jazz Studio 1. Here the two tunes amply justify the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Took me back 50 years. 30 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this because I searched for Sir Jonathan Gasser . His was the only name I remembered from listening to a version of "Tenderly", with him playing an acoustic guitar (with an electric pickup?). I came up with this CD.
When we were schoolboys some of us used to gather to listen to records including some from an LP collection of a friend's brother and that track was on one of them.
"Tenderly" starts off the album with Sir Jonathan Gasser's sublime solo guitar intro (truly tenderly) with all the other seven musicians in the group joining in and taking turns with their interpretations throughout the 22mins, ending with "Sir Jonathan Gasser's" tender solo guitar playing out.
Sir Jonathan Gasser is actually Johnny Smith and one of the musicians associated with John Graas whose "project" this compilation is. The CD includes two albums from "Jazz Studio" sessions and with other great tracks but "Tenderly" alone is worth every penny. There are also other John Graas "Jazz Studio" compilations which I shall now try.
