Product Description

Product Description

This is Volume 2 in a series of recordings dedicated to the work of British composers by the drummer Clark Tracey. Tracey is well-known as the drummer with his father Stan Tracey's various outfits, whether it be a trio, octet or big band but he is also an acclaimed leader of his own groups.

Volume One featured Tracey's trio which was described in the Observer by Dave Gelly as having "reached a level of empathy that allows it to tackle virtually any material and make it sound fresh." For Volume Two Tracey has added saxophonist Brandon Allen, a rising star who has impressed everyone who has heard him performing with Guy Barker and Stan Tracey's octet and orchestra.

Clark Tracey has chosen a mix of material from standards by the likes of Victor Feldman, Ray Noble and Bricusse and Newley as well as tunes that have stood out to him as a performer by contemporary talents such as David Newton, Tim Garland and Django Bates.

Personnel:
Clark Tracey - (drums), Arnie Somogyi - (double bass), Gareth Williams - (piano), Brandon Allen - (saxophone)

Review

(4 stars) Covers worthy lesser-known originals by Tim Garland, David Newton, Bobby Wellins...performed with exceptional skill, imagination and conviction. -- Evening Standard, (Jack Massarik), March 28, 2008

The dynamic young Brandon Allen is on tenor sax...smokey-toned, languorous...Tracey imaginatively reinvents Seven Steps To Heaven as a percussion feature. -- The Guardian, (John Fordham), March 7, 2008

Format: Audio CD
A slight disappointment to me really given the talent concerned here.Full marks to Tracey for getting the brilliant Aussie tenorist Brandon Allen into the studio but doesn't really give him enought to do.It opens with great promise with the Bobby Wellins tune "C.U.C.B" where Allen takes his best solo of the session.With five of the tracks running at under five minutes there isn't really enough time to let these great musicians show what they can really do.Gareth Williams gets three trio tracks to show of his hard swinging piano style and with Tracey on drums and Arnie Somogyi on bass this really is a great quartet hence my slight disappointment at the end result with so much talent on display.
A good set of tunes nicely played by all but no more than that.
