Editorial Reviews

The debut big band album of award-winning composer and arranger Joe Clark, Lush simmers and swings with a line-up of Chicago s best jazz players and Grammy®-winning drummer Jeff Hamilton playing jazz standards and new compositions! Clark leads the band on exciting and intimate new originals and arrangements influenced by film noir and the greasy sound of New Orleans brass bands, including Well You Needn t, Lush Life, and Tenderly. Features the hard-driving swing of Grammy®-winning drummer Jeff Hamilton, co-director of the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra and renowned for his work with the Count Basie Orchestra, Woody Herman s Thundering Herd, the Bill Holman Band, Ray Brown, Ella Fitzgerald, and Diana Krall.

Format: Audio CD
It has been a long time since I have heard new music filled with so many fresh ideas and with such energy.--and with such a high success rate in advancing the musical cause at hand. Lush, by the Joe Clark Big Band, signals the emergence of a formidable musical thinker, gifted as a composer, arranger, bandleader, and musician. This 52-minute release on the JazzedMedia label is an auspicious and memorable debut, one which also spotlights the brilliant veteran drummer Jeff Hamilton, as well as tenor saxophonist Chris Madsen, alto player Dan Nicholson, and others.
The album's eight tracks are split between standards and very fine originals. The former includes compositions like Thelonious Monk's "Well You Needn't." Of the originals, one is by Hamilton--the Brazilian-inflected "Samba de Martelo"--and three are by Clark. All of the songs are given muscular and spirited interpretations by an ensemble of 21 musicians, mainly horn players. The result is an abundance of music that is alive in the fullest sense. This is no small feat, considering that, apart from a single rehearsal, this group had never played together before.
Some of the soloing is breathtaking, particularly by Chris Madsen on "Lush Life." All of the compositions benefit from Clark's arranging, especially "Tenderly," which wins through pure stellar stately beauty. He approaches the standards with fresh eyes--and with a bracing curiosity about the composers' original intentions. Both covers and originals benefit from the intense attention Clark devotes to each bar of music. His arrangements develop the musical ideas of a given song to its fullest amplitude. Miles Davis once told Downbeat Magazine that a horn section can sound good, as long as it doesn't repeat too much. Clark takes that line of thought to a whole new plane.

Knowing that this album features Chicago's top jazz musicians was the first reason I bought this record. The second reason I bought it was because it featured Jeff Hamilton. If you haven't heard Jeff Hamilton play drums that guy can swing his ass off.

With those two combinations plus Joe Clark's amazing talent to compose and arrange music makes this record a must have. His arrangements on Well You Needn't, Tenderly, and Yesterdays Gardenias and even his compostions of Femme Fatale and Red Sky, shows you the playfulness & quirkiness in Joe's writing.

This record is on a different level.

This album not only features one the best culminations of Chicago's best musicians-spearheaded by legendary drummer Jeff Hamilton-it features beautiful and intricate arrangements written by Joe Clark himself. I'm proud to say that I have this album, A+ in my book. I'd recommend it to anyone who loves jazz or who's interested in great music made by real musicians. Swingin' stuff, can't wait for the next album!
