Customer Review

on 1 March 2012
Having collected over the years a large collection of cd's by the brilliant Alan Barnes, i must say i put this particular one a the very top.Being a long time admirer of the late great Art Pepper, this cd was made for me.The concept for the cd was the bassist Al Swaingers,who throughout this disc swings like the clappers and picked all the tunes and transcribed all the music. The tunes selected cover a large period of Arts life and make a very well balanced selection.
The pianist Craig Milverton, should be more well known to the jazz public then he is,and plays wonderfully,be it a ballad or up-tempo number he really shines throughout with relaxed fluency and qualified inventiveness.The drum chair is taken by Nick Millward,and i must confess is a new name to me, but is none the worse for that, he understands this style of jazz and is never over bearing and makes the cd all the better for it.Alan is in his element playing this music, being a great Art Pepper fan Alan plays with great feeling and emotion throughout but is never a slavish copy and his interpretations of each piece still retain the Barnes sound.
If like me you like good modern jazz and love Art pepper go out and buy this Cd or better still catch Alan at one of his many live gigs throughout the country and purchase one from him,as the cd is issued on Alan's own cd label.
