Format: Audio CD
"New Time, New 'Tet", Benny Golson's first new album in several years and already climbing the charts, features a modern version of one of his favorite forms, the sextet -- or as he calls it, the 'jazztet'.
This CD is his first album since 2004's "Terminal 1" which followed his appearance in the Steven Spielberg's movie "The Terminal".
Joining with the legendary saxophonist to form the group and also help bring back his signature 'three horn' sound are trombonist Steve Davis and trumpeter Eddie Henderson, who has the difficult task of emulating long-time Golson collaborator Art Farmer on trumpet and flugelhorn. Filling out the sextet are pianist Mike LaDonne, bassist Buster Williams, and percussionist Carl Allen.
The ten tracks include some of Golson's own classic pieces, such as "Whisper Not," here given the added delight of an Al Jarreau vocal, and some newer compositions too.
"Uptown Afterburn" is a tune that would have been completely at home in the bebop era of Golson's younger days.
Also on board are pieces from other jazz legends, including Sonny Rollins' classic, "Airegin" and "Epistrophy", an outstanding and irresistible rendition that composer Thelonious Monk would have loved. Golson's sax is especially nice here with his breathy style on full display.
Golson draws from some eclectic source material, including an elegant but soulful cover of El DeBarge's "Love Me in a Special Way," which features particularly warm solo statements from the leader and Davis.
"It's interesting to note that Golson has also included a couple of tracks that feature his take on classical music. Good stuff".

New Time, New `Tet: is Golson's first new studio recording in five years. Revisiting the format of the esteemed Jazztet that Golson founded with Art Farmer in 1960, Golson assembled another stellar ensemble in which he is joined by trumpeter Eddie Henderson, and trombonist Steve Davis, pianist Mike LeDonne, Buster Williams, drummer Carl Allen, and vocalist Al Jarreau who delivers a satisfying performance on Golson's classic "Whisper Not". In addition to Golson compositions, this album features Golson's new arrangements of classics like Thelonious Monk's "Epistrophy," and Sonny Rollins' "Airegin,". Classical music is also represented in Golson's compelling jazz arrangements of works by Chopin and Verde. This recording reveals that master musician Benny Golson, at 80, remains a creative force in the jazz world. Highly recommended.

Terrific offering from a Jazz Legend! Every song was exquisite. The crossover tribute to Verdi was a surprise to behold.

It's that type of old fashion jazz that needs more spice to the sound the track. Benny Golson is a great musician, more rhythms should have been added.
