Product Description

Digitally Remastered
Stereo
This CD presents two of the best English modern jazz combos of the late 50s and early 60s, both sharing the same instrumentation. Two outstand- ing British talents, baritone saxophonist Ronnie Ross and drummer Allan Ganley, launched The Jazz Makers in 1958, recruiting the delightful tenor of Art Ellefson for an impressively balanced and imaginative front line, with pianist Stan Jones and bassist Stan Wasser completing a formida- ble rhythm section. Ross, always a strong, coherent and inventive so- loist, blended intuitively with Ellef- son s warm, flowing style and the results were filled with tremendous snap, vigour and musicality. It was a superb ensemble which produced com- pelling results and much music to remember.
The Jazz Five was formed in 1960 by baritone Harry Klein and tenor Vic Ash, two consistent, capable and accomplished soloists. Klein a confident, self-assured performer, was an assertive and swinging player, while Vic Ash possessed an outgoing, fluent approach, making him an ideal front-line partner. On a well written set of five originals and one standard, their ensemble had a bruising impact, with the rhythm section rounding out the group effectively, thanks in no small measure to the stimulating style of pianist Brian Dee, one of the highlights of this reunion.

Excellant jazz from 1959 and1960. Similar to Bob Gordon and Jack Montrose.Great playing all round and stereo sound as if it was recorded yesterday.Two albums on one CD, The jazz makers and The jazz five. At the moment I like The jazz five the most, Ronnie Ross on baritone and a great tenor player _ Art Ellefson. These must have been the best modern British jazz combos around at the time! Listen to samples on Amazon and hear for yourself! By the way Ronnie Ross played the bari solo on Lou Reeds take a walk on the wild side.

HASH(0x97985cb4) out of 5 stars Hooter - released in the UK as "The Five of Us" 15 Jun. 2014
By John Abbott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although largely forgotten today, The Jazz Five were the most prominent jazz group in the UK after the demise of the Jazz Couriers. They lasted until 1962, playing on the UK tours of the Miles Davis Quintet in 1960 – Davis apparently commented “I dig your group” – and the Dave Brubeck Quartet. Later in their careers Klein and Ash made their livings as fairly anonymous session musicians. Klein was one of the sax players on “Lady Madonna” by The Beatles, and Ash played for Frank Sinatra on his European and Middle Eastern tours from 1970 up until Sinatra’s death.

The group (which also included Brian Dee on piano, Malcome Cecil on bass and Tony Mann on drums), were influenced by Horace Silver, and used the interplay between Ash’s tenor sax and Klein’s surprisingly agile baritone as their distinctive calling-card. These extended, inventive sets include plenty of originals, such as “Hootin’ (from Ash), which inspired the retitling of the LP for its US release as The Hooter.
