Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

These 1993 live recordings of senior scat singer and lyricist Jon Hendricks are certainly an all-star affair, with contributions from tenor saxophonist Benny Golson, trombonist Al Grey, and Wynton Marsalis, who joins in scatting as well as playing trumpet. But it's also a family affair, with first Michele and then Judith and Aria Hendricks joining in as well on vocals. High spirits are contagious with scat singing, and there's almost a party atmosphere, whether the songs are well-known standards or Hendricks's verbally adroit originals. The CD concludes with the Hendricks family revisiting the Lambert, Hendricks and Ross vocalese arrangements of Count Basie material, with the richer harmonies of "Shiny Stockings" standing up best. This is a celebration of a significant talent. --Stuart Broomer

5.0 out of 5 stars Be-bop with the best of them July 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Excellent music; it is probably not actually the top of Hendricks' discography but it is a noteworthy collective effort, not just a Hendricks album.
With the entire Hendricks' vocal gang (family), with Marsalis equally effective on trumpet and vocals, with steamin' hot saxes, great trombone and rock-solid rhythm section, the amount of excellent and joyfull modern jazz on this album will warm your heart.

Yes, Hendricks used to be in a bit better form but he is just one of great artists on this CD, presiding over this heated concert (that sounds like a jam session) with regal confidence. Not as good as Freddie Freeloader, this album is still magnificent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hendricks Finally Begins to Show His Age a Little January 20, 2004
Format:Audio CD
If anyone else had done this album, I might rave. But this is the man who brought us all of those quintessential LH&R albums from the '50's and early '60's, and the vastly superior "Freddie Freeloader" a mere 3 years prior. Jon shows his age on this a bit, never more apparent than on "One O'Clock Jump." There's no way a 75-year-old Jon Hendricks is going to recreate the subliminal mood of "Sing a Song of Basie", especially without a young Annie Ross, and it was a mistake to try. Best cut on this was "Roll 'Em Pete"--basically because the other musicians could stretch out and jam around Mr. Hendricks. He'll still go down in history; just not with this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing December 5, 1999
Format:Audio CD
For an album that was recorded in the late 50's this recording is incredible. This is what blues and scat are all about. If you have a chance to listen to this on tubed equipment do yourself a favor, and listen. Start with "everybodies boppin'". You'll be smiling at the end of the song!

3.0 out of 5 stars ermm....this wasn't recorded in the fifties July 12, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If Wynton Marsalis was playing trumpet in the fifties that would make him some kind of weird non-existent hindu prodigy who made a mad deal with Satan, in order to be born to Ellis Marsalis 10 years later. (Wynton was born in 1961) As stated above, this album was recorded in the nineties, though I'm sure that doesn't detract from its "tubed" equipment enjoyment.
