Format: Audio CD
Thank heaven Eddie Sauter got the chance to stretch out and write for the Ray McKinley Band of the late '40's. Otherwise, big band lovers might never have been treated to some of the best big band writing (and playing) ever. Anyone aspiring to be a jazz music writer should listen to anything Sauter has ever written. He is one of my favorites, if not my favorite writer. This music was the prelude to the innovative Sauter-Finegan Orchestra of the 1950's. Sauter's writing was never easy to play and required a lot of rehearsal time by the excellent musicians. But the fruits of their labor are well worth hearing and BORDERLINE is a classic CD that should not be missed.

These are Ray McKinley's 1946-47 recordings that were originally issued on Eli Oberstein's "Majestic" label. The sound quality of this record label (as with all of Oberstein's earlier ventures: "Varsity" and "Hit" records) were inferior to the major labels at the time, however, there is some great music here! McKinley brought in arranger EDDIE SAUTER, who is best remembered for his advanced arrangements he did earlier for Benny Goodman, Such as "Benny Rides Again", "Superman", and "Clarinet a La King". By 1946, Sauter had pulled out all the stops and wrote probably the best and most advanced arrangements in Jazz history. His arrangements were so complex that he had to co-direct the band with Ray McKinley, something he did later with Bill Finegan. (The Sauter-Finegan Orchestra) Can people today dig stuff like "Tumblebug", "Hangover Square", and "Sand Storm"? Wow!

I became acutely aware of Eddie Sauter when I saw It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's Superman at NYC Encores recently (check out Youtube), which he orchestrated. Since then I have searched for anything I can find he's arranged. All I can say is WOW! While his recorded body of works seems pretty small, almost everything I've heard has something special and surprising. All I can say is grab everything you can find and listen!

even though the ray mc kinley band recoded in the late 1940's, this cd is still current and swinging for it's time.
