Format: Audio CD
I first had a copy on vinyl of the Woody's Winners album about
twenty years ago. I then made the fatal error of lending it to
someone and have not seen it or him since! To finally find the
album re released on CD is fantastic and listening to it again it
still remains in my opinion one of the best and most exciting Big
Band albums ever recorded.
As a trumpet player myself I may be a bit biased but the stars of
the recording are the trumpet section led by the late great Bill
Chase. The opening track,23 Red is a phenomenal chase (no pun)
with three of the trumpet players trying to blow each other off the stand,and that pace never lets up throughout the album.
There is excitement in every number,all the sections sound really
tight and together and as well as all the fantastic trumpet solos
the sax soloists Sal Nistico and Gary Klein are on top form.
This is a live recording and the feeling conveyed throughout is of a band who are really enjoying themselves. The same band recorded much of the same material in a concert Live from Antibes a year or so later and whilst that album is very good it doesn't quite convey the same sense of excitement as Woodys Winners and the trumpets don't quite hit their solos with the same precision and swing.
As far as the Jazz Hoot album is concerned, The Duck and Boopsie are particularly naff. Sidewinder could do without the vocal from the leader and Mardis Gras sounds a bit like a sequence dance for Come Dancing! Apart from that the rest of the album is
okay with more great trumpet work from Bill Chase on I Can't Get
Started and good versions of Satin Doll,Watermelon Man and Jazz

HASH(0x9770fe64) out of 5 stars Sidewinder 29 Jun. 2003
By Robert Usher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I would take exception to the number of derrogatory comments about "Sidewinder". The caleidoscopic trumpet sequence in the middle of that piece is more than worth the price of admission, and Woody's vocal, as pedestrian as most of his vocal performances were, makes the piece (and him) all-the-more endearing. And then there is the presence of Charlie Byrd ("The Duck" "Boopsie"). The greatest guitarist this side of Joe Pass. The "Jazz Hoot" album was originally a 1974 compilation of left-over material from Herman's Columbia sessions of the late sixties. Check out (if you can) the original "Jazz Hoot" from the Philips album "Woody Herman 1964". Phil Wilson's trombone solo and Jake Hanna's clog dance drums are worth TEN stars!!!

HASH(0x98344cac) out of 5 stars what a bargain!!! 5 Mar. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
choice 'woody' material from the mid sixties when he switched over to columbia from the phillips label. all the great soloists are here...nistico on tenor, chase, don rader and dusko goykovich on trumpet. the bargain is that you are getting 2 albums for the price of 1. at least they are compatible with each other, which is more than i can say for the 'jazz swinger' re-release. the only reason i give this 4 instead of 5 stars is that you have to suffer through two of woody's vocals on 'sidewinder' and 'boopsie'. at the very least, you can get a good laugh when you hear those tracks. the rest of the charts are great though. nice mix of updated 'woody' standards, classic big band tracks and originals written for the herd.

HASH(0x98928da8) out of 5 stars Take the Good with the Bad 27 Mar. 2001
By Shazbat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The last eight cuts on the CD are worth the price of admission. "Boopsie" and "Sidewinder" are cutesy and cheesy, respectively: skip those cuts. A couple of the other cuts from the JAZZ HOOT portion of the CD are of the "we-gotta-work-the commercial-B side-stuff-into-the album" genre. Herman's best latter-day recordings were with the Philips label. (Verve may have ownership/rights to the master sides, but that is only conjecture.) Anyway, the band was still thundering when this material was recorded. If you like this music and this band, try to get hold of the Philips LPs (or pray that Verve will release more of the Philips material on CD).

HASH(0x99156de0) out of 5 stars Wonderful Woody 18 May 2001
By Dan DeTorpedos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Tremendous, driving jazz! The band featured so many stars: Jake Hanna (drums), Howard McGhee (tenor), Sal Nistico (tenor), Bill Harris ('bone), Bill Chase (trumpet), Ronnie Zito (drums), Nat Pierce doing the ivories, etc. A couple of the selections from the Jazz Hoot half of the album have some appeal, although the material recorded at the Basin Street gig is the best. I agree with other reviewers...the Philips material is superior in many respects to the Columbia stuff, but it is ALL worth hearing...except for Woody's vocals from the '60s and later. In any case, I would urge anyone interested in the big band resurgence of the 50s-60s to get his/her hands on as much of Woody's music as possible from that era.
