BAR CODE: -


Big-band jazz gains a dimension when it is energized by a brilliant central virtuoso like Terry Gibbs, and he self-evidently sparked these live sessions, wailing in front of a fine band with the kind of men and arrangements that suited him perfectly. What registers so vividly is that, although this splendid band had only worked together sporadically, it had a pervasive group feeling and a cohesion and excitement that were communicated with vitality and fervor by the superb ensemble playing and consistently high quality blowing by Bill Perkins, Joe Maini, Conte Candoli, Richie Kamuca, Frank Rosolino, and Pat Moran.

What also made their sound so infectious was their swinging arrangements, deftly wrought by top writers like Bill Holman, Al Cohn, Manny Albam, and Shorty Rogers. This is a true picture of how this band really sounded, thanks to the work of the great sound engineer, Wally Heider, which so vibrantly brought it to life in its transfer from The Summit night club on Sunset Blvd., where it was recorded in excellent stereo sound. It is indisputably one of the best big band efforts in Terry Gibbs’ illustrious history as a top jazzman and band leader.
