Editorial Reviews

On a sunny afternoon in that still beautiful Havana of the mid fifties, my old man brought an LP on a multicolor jacket with six pictures of a clarinetist with the heading: The Great Benny Goodman. The names HARRY JAMES, GENE KRUPA, TEDDY WILSON, LIONEL HAMPTON, and a few other great Jazz artists were highlighted in red, black and blue letters.

Unfortunately, Amazon doesn't (currently) have sample clips from this CD, and it turned out to be quite different from what I expected. I either assumed or read somewhere that the arrangements (by Michael Abene) would be new, but I expected them to be in the spirit of the originals, and in many cases, they aren't.

The album gets off to a great start with "Slipped Disc"--the chart is definitely updated, but it swings like crazy. If the whole album had been in a similar vein, I'd be giving it 5 stars. "Memories of You" was fine; Abene left it as a ballad. "Benny @ 100" was fun, and as D'Rivera's original tune, it can be whatever he wants it to be. I don't know the original "Soft Winds," so I've got no bone to pick with that one either. And "Goodbye" seemed pretty true to the spirit of the original also.

On the other hand...

"Let's Dance" with a martial beat?? "Stomping at the Savoy" as a funk tune?? The melody of "Don't Be That Way" completely re-rhythmed and re-harmonized?? The other song, "Sing Sing Sing," was so-so---not as far off-target as those other three, but not a direct hit, either.

Arrangements aside, the playing is fine (though for my taste, D'Rivera went a little overboard with the be-bop quotes).

But if you're like me and care as much or more about the charts than about the solos, then be aware before you buy this CD that you're going to hear some pretty radical deconstructions of Goodman's original swing tunes, and if that sends up a red flag, try going to another site where preview clips are available.

Interesting, introspective and unique!
Paquito does it hisay and it is quite lovely.
A jazz delight.
I met, photographed and heard Benny Goodman.
He was a spectacular musician.
That does not diminish this great album or Paquito D'Rivera in the least!

Paquito D'Rivera and the WDR Big Band Tribute to Benny Goodman is outstanding! The solo's are superb, the arrangements are elegant and full flavored. A must for serious Big Band collectors.

What hasn't been said about Benny Goodman and his music? Paquito adds a nice latin jazz twist to the big band sounds.
