Editorial Reviews

Frustrating his legions of fans, Artie constantly came and went from the music business; after these sessions, he was gone for good. You'll wonder why after hearing these brilliant performances by Artie, Hank Jones, Tal Farlow and the rest of his band: Stop and Go Mambo; The Chaser; Stardust; Dancing in the Dark; Cross Your Heart; Frenesi ; two takes of Autumn Leaves , and more on 2 CDs!

And I thought the first set of Last Recordings -- reissued after 20 years out-of-printness by Nimbus -- was the bee's knees. This is that and a couple more knees of bees. "Begin the Beguine" like you've never heard. TWO takes of "Autumn Leaves" each worthy of inclusion here. And if you thought "When the Quail Come to San Quentin" was hot, wait until you hear the ten-minute closing number, "Grabtown Grapple," a trot around the track with Artie's fantastic hand-picked small ensemble. There's more riffing here than the earlier Last sessions, from "Shave and a Haircut" to, brilliantly, "A Night in Tunisia" (again, on "Grabtown"). When Artie went small, it was the last virtuosic act of a bandleader who seemed capable of just about anything.

Or should I say the SECOND to last virtuosic act: Nimbus later this month is issuing Last Recordings 3, one more than the original reissue, with sessions from 1954-1956. Can't wait!

Actually, the Amazon vendor, BuyCDNow of Vermont, merits 10 stars out of five for truly outstanding service. I initially ordered this CD from another Amazon USA vendor, but, when the order did not arrive after the minimum 60 days waiting period specified by Amazon, and then when the vendor failed to respond to two, follow-up, direct E-Mail inquiries over the next two weeks, I re-ordered with another Amazon USA vendor, BuyCDNow. I asked them to take special care in mailing the shipment, as my previous order was two and a half months overdue and presumably lost somewhere in the U.S. or Canadian postal systems. BuyCDNow responded to my order promptly, and, in a couple of friendly E-Mail messages, advised that the shipment would be mailed in Montreal, Canada, and provided the package's computer tracking number in the Canadian postal system. Exactly one week after placing my order, I was listening to the CDs on my stereo. I've bought a lot of books and CDs from Amazon USA vendors over the last seven years; the service from most of them has been good, and from maybe a dozen exceptionally good, but no one to date in my experience has provided such outstanding service as BuyCDNow of Vermont. They seem to bend over backwards to serve you as well as possible, and then some.

As for the CD, anything by Mr Shaw merits five stars in my opinion, but this two-disc volume (and its two companion volumes) gets eight stars out of five! Tom Nolan, in his great new book Three Chords for Beauty's Sake: The Life of Artie Shaw (2010, pp 345-6), cites reviews that praise these last recordings as among Mr. Shaw's best work, referring to the CDs put out in the early 1990s by MusicMasters.
