Editorial Reviews

The Pizzarelli family name has become synonymous with prebop swing in the postbop era. Like his father, Bucky, John wields a strong, fast strum on guitar, here easily meeting toe-to-toe with tenor saxophonist Harry Allen. Pizzarelli's usual drummerless trio abets the music's rhythmic streams better than a drum-anchored band probably could, in large part thanks to the way piano and guitar wrap each other in harmonic and rhythmic motion at once. For his part, Allen is a big-toned player, slurring tones in buildups during "Blue Lou" and playing strong, hard-blowing solos especially on "I Want to Be Happy." Pizzarelli writes in the liner notes that he wanted the CD to have a loose, jam-session-like feel to it, and Martin Pizzarelli's bass is a great rudder steering the unit further and further forward with each tune. But there are also tender ballads, catching the guitar in glistening stillness and Allen's horn in romantic mellowness. --Andrew Bartlett

I just picked this up on a whim as I had no idea who Harry Allen was. I was really floored. I'm a fan of old standards and this album covers some great ones. Allen swings hard, has great technique and plays in a style that reminds you of a hybrid between Zoot Sims and Stan Getz. He's great! Refreshing to hear someone heading the opposite direction of all the contemporary players from a sound and style standpoint.

This is my favorite of Harry Allen's many CDs, and although most of his work is excellent, I think this recording is his best. Whether the tune is taken up-tempo as in "I want to be happy" or "Limehouse blues," or it's a slow ballad as with "Early autumn," Allen and Pizzarelli produce marvelous renditions. Harry Allen is one of the finest tenormen playing today in the "mainstream" tradition--a la Scott Hamilton. Highly recommended.

To say I am without bias would be a lie, but, personal feelings aside, Harry has shown why he is truly one of the great Tenor Saxaphone musicians of all time. Teaming with fellow New Jerseyans John and Martin Pizzarelli (and of course, the talented pianist Ray Kennedy), these standards (and songs that may be future standards) have been redefined. John's sense of rhythm (using his guitar for rhythm instead of drums) blended with Harry's smooth and mellow sound create an absolutely enjoyable listening experience. From the energy filled redition of "Pennies from Heaven" to the classic balad "Body and Soul", this album shows the range of this groups talents. There is little I think this team can't do together.
"If you want to make it in this buisness, you need to sound like Coltrane!" someone once advised him. I, for one, am glad he ignored that advice.
