5.0 out of 5 stars A sleeper in the Chet discography, but EXCELLENT! November 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
That pretty much sums up this short little release. Those who have been around for a while or who are in the know somewhat may remember this session from its original Captiol records release called "PLAYBOYS." That release, if I do say so myself, possessed a far, far, far (and I cannot stress this enough, FAR) superior cover/artwork. Definitely look into getting yourself a copy, though they are very scarce and very much out of print these days (but, as always, very much worth the search).

Solid, smooth, typical west-coast vibe. It's fluid all the way around and beautiful as the day is long. As the reviewer below me indicated, it's perfect for virtually every time of day, night, season or what have you.

I don't know why this doesn't get more recognition, but with some of the other releases in Chet's arsenal, it's hardly surprising. Still, this comes off as one of his finer Pacific Jazz releases short of his Russ Freeman ventures. And it's definitely worth owning, if not for the Chet factor, for Art Pepper's contributions alone.

Get this while you can. You will definitely treasure it and I sense you will regard it as a valuable addition to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Chet it's good July 27, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Granted this may not be considered a jazz staple, but I can't seem to stop listening. It's jazz for the summer, or winter, or anytime other than a rainy day.
Continually upbeat, surprisingly inventive for this victim of fashion, it's strong from start to finish. Picture of Health is also special for the sheer fact that, while a great listen, it does not require attention.
So, give Chet a chance, you'll like it.

The bottom line: six original tunes orchestrated and executed beautifully by the three-horn front-line and supported by a state-of-the-art rhythm section (you just can't do better than Carl Perkins and Curtis Counce). The downside: the necessary reduction of solo space, especially for Perkins' piano, and a sense of sameness in the arrangements.

The photo makes it clear that Chet, looking blase as the only seated member of the horn section, has the least interest in the proceedings. What's less clear is how even a "natural" such as Chet, who was renowned for not being able to read music, could handle intricate arrangements such as these. (Certainly the picture of Chet "reading" music, albeit in a seated position, belies much received wisdom about his musical literacy.0 Moreover, Chet and Pepper--two of the most identifiable and expressive voices in jazz--sound like "merely" proficient players on this occasion. Chet employs an uncharacteristically extrovertish, brassy sound, and Art negotiates chord changes as he did in the Kenton big band. The album at least reveals the scarce-recorded Phil Urso to have been a player capable of rising to practically the same level as his two celebrated peers. Of the tunes, Heath's "For Minors Only" is the only one that caught on as a jazz standard (a "minor" one)

Musically, this could have been a five-star session with the subtraction of one, possibly even two, of the horn players. I'd love to see Chet's horn being placed to the fire, bringing some earnest sweat to his brow, and this is a rhythm section made for the part.

Of almost as much interest as the music is the story of the album itself.
