5.0 out of 5 stars Max for Max, 23 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: At Vine Sreet Live (Audio CD)
In the several years before she died, Maxine Sullivan made a flurry of rercordings and all were essential listening. The five stars here are for her singing - a collectionf of 12 Standards and Show Tunes, seven of them with lyrics by Johhny Mercer, who could do little wrong in my book. The accompaniment is fairly good - not the quality of Miss sullivan's last live recorded concer with the Scott Hamilton quintet or better still the three studio-recorded albums for Stash Records with Keith Ingham's arrangements and backing group. When on some of those you hear the veteran ex-Glenn Miller tenor saxist Al Klink intro or solo, Max has a peer. Here, one of the four well known West Coast session men /jazzers Herman Riley plays OK tenor, but not with the feeling of a Klink, a Hamilton or a Webster. Most surprising track is Hoagy Carmichael's "The Old Music Master", which Max takes at a lower tempo than the composer's famous recording, but swings gently but irresistably - lovely bass playing here and throughout by Red Callender. Recorded in the Vine street Bar and Grill, Max announces each song and clearly enjoyed the whole event. What a lovely singer!
