Format: Audio CD
one of the rare few vocal jazz sessions cut by the legendary clarke-boland big band - a highly swinging affair that ranks with the group's best work of the time for mps! singer gitte haenning was a bit of a pop-styled vocalist at the time - but in the company of the cbbb she really sounds great - coming across with an almost-icy tone that reminds us a bit of the work of monica zetterlund, and grooving with a soaring style that swings perfectly alongside the group! as usual, the players in the ensemble are the cream of the crop on both sides of the atlantic - and include johnny griffin, tony coe, john surman, kenny clarke, benny bailey, and dusko goykovich - all master musicians who know how to perfectly come together, yet also break out with a sweet solo when they get the space! this digipak reissue on bureau b comes with a 20 page booklet.

HASH(0x93ced8dc) out of 5 stars Superior Vocals and Big Band Combination 6 Feb. 2014
By Hugh Oliver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Gitte Haenning isn't known as a jazz vocalist--pop is her normal milieu--but this date with the Clarke-Boland Big Band
is clear evidence that Haenning could have devoted her entire career to jazz had she chosen.
It appears from the accompanying booklet that in 1969 things weren't going too well between Haenning and EMI. Executives
for the label wanted her to renew a contract with them and continue to record the same type of material they had been having
her do, and Haenning was not interested in the continuation. Recording engineer Wolfgang Hirschmann, who worked as sound
man for both Haenning and the Clarke-Boland Big Band, thought that a collaboration between them would be a perfect musical
match as well as a break from the format Haenning had been doing.
The band recorded their work; it was then submitted to Haenning who then sang with the band's tracks. Listeners need not
be concerned about this--the final result is seamless. It sounds just like Haenning was present with the band, and it is, indeed
a perfect marriage of styles. Both the material and the band's performances/arrangements could not fit her better.

The 10 song program here alternates between better known songs and less well known ones. Really, all 10 are highlights, but
if pressed to choose, Lennon-McCartney's 'A World Without Love', Gary McFarland's 'A Sack Full of Dreams', and the Francy Boland/Jimmy Woode 'November Girl' are favorites.

There are some highly irreverent and sassy songs as well, which Haenning and the band treat accordingly. Haenning acknowledges Lena Horne as a main influence. She was 23 when this was recorded. Her girlish but not breathy voice,
ability to sustain pitch with flawless intonation, and knowledge of when to be vocally aggressive and when to be more
restrained all combine to make this project work to perfection.

A little about the Clarke-Boland band: To not have heard this group is to not have lived! Think of the precision and
confidence of the Count Basie band, then add to that a sass and swagger that go even beyond Basie, then consider the ability of the CBBB
to musically 'scream' and shout, cut completely loose and yet remain rock solid as an ensemble, and the elements are in
place to begin an appreciation of this band. The saxes, led by the late Derek Humble on Alto, are about as good as sax
playing gets, and lead trumpet player Benny Bailey plays screech far better than a well known Stan Kenton alumnus.

The playing time is low: 32 minutes, but the way around the short time is to repeat it from the beginning.

Devotees of big band jazz and female jazz vocals should not hesitate to get this. There won't be any regrets at all.
