Format: Audio CD
This album is one more piece of evidence that Joe Morello is one of the all-time greats of jazz drumming. The music (and Morello's drumming) is tasteful, dynamic and swinging throughout, Morello shows his marverlous technique, his good taste and his sense of humor as well. My only regreat is that Joe didn't start recording albums such as this one as soon as he left the Brubeck Quartet in the late 60's.

Joe Morello is hands down one of the most musical drummers. The songs on this cd never suffer from heavy handedness (or footedness for that matter). He very well has aquired some of the best chops and technique on the planet but always plays for the song and gets out of the way of the other musicians when they take a solo or a few bars. This is a recording for anyone who enjoys jazz, whether a fellow drummer or not. Beautiful tasty musicianship and a beautifully recorded album.

IF all the great drummers that ever lived were assembled in an auditorium, and Joe Morello walked in...they would all stand!

"Going Places" is simply one example of why he's the best in the business. And, as expected, surrounded by the greatest musicians in this world..or any world!

"Going Places" will take you through a universe of great Jazz and where Joe Morello rules supreme.

Joe Morello's impeccable technique, noted style and brilliant creativity are all present on this album. You won't be disappointed. If you are an aspiring drummer you'll hear how each instrument in JM's trap set interacts with and blends in melodies and harmonies played by a world class trio- Gary Mazzaroppi on bass, Ralph Lalamaon saxophone/flute and Greg Kogan at the piano. JM demonstrates his musicality and/or humor on each chart. The CD is pure joy to listen to over and over; and if you're interested in improving your drumming, Going Places puts you right in the center of a perfect drum lesson, taught by one of (if not) the world's best drummer(s) of all time.

The musical style here is Brubeck-esque. Joe gets plenty of solos. The group is balanced and works well together. I should have bought this album years ago.

A Kid's Review on May 22, 2010
Format: Audio CD
This is a classic CD. I am so Glad that I bought this when I did. This CD is fantastic. I enjoy playing jazz drums myself so Topsy and Mission Impossible Theme are two of my favorites.

This is one CD that always goes in my travel sack when the wife and I go on a trip. Joe Morrello is my favorite drummer. I like him better than Buddy Rich, Gene Kruper, or any of the other classics. He's tops. The most rythmic drummer in the business. You'll see that when you listen to Sweet Georgia Brown.

The guys backing him up on this CD are no slouches either. I can honestly say that when I listen to this CD I don't miss that fact that there is no Dave Brubeck on it.

Joe does it on this one. I wish that he had made 50 more with this group. I would have bought them all.
