Editorial Reviews

Don Fagerquist (1927-1974) might be one of the most underrated jazz trumpets in history despite countless recordings with Gene Krupa, Artie Shaw, Woody Herman, Les Brown and Dave Pelf. Although he was a Hollywood studio musician since 1956, over the years Don Fagerquist maintained his contact with the jazz scene, as these tracks can prove. He had a unique sound and phrasing that immediately identified him, allowing us at once to appreciate Don's playing. This CD is more than a collection of mood music and jazz tUnes: it is a delightful, warm and descriptive musical portrait of a great jazz artist. Multiwaves. 2006

By Bill Peterson on February 23, 2010
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This a marvelous collection of performances by one of the truly great jazz trumpeters of the big band jazz era.

His total control, melodic invention and chordal, harmonic sense are the finest examples of trumpet improvisation there are.

He was successful and in great demand for recording sessions and studio work, with the likes of Sinatra, Mel torme and contless toers; it is amazing that he did not garner many albums of his artistry.

This album is a gem, from a definetly over-looked and undervalued trumpeter in the eys and ears of the general public. But the folks that really undr3stood his greatness hired and appreciated what his gifts were.

With great appreciation for this album,

Bill Peterson

Everything on this CD is wonderful. Don Fagerquist is one of the best Trumpet players to emerge from the flock that was playing the West Coast Cool School. Anything Don Fagerquist solo's on is going to be a good buy. Since he is listed as the leader for this session, he gets plenty of playing time. There is one annoying thing about this CD. On the tune Aren't You Glad You Are Here, there is a repulsive and repeating ensemble figure before the solos and after the solos. It makes this tune almost unlistenable. Just my opinion. If you like it that's fine. Joe Vavruska, Daytona Beach

Great Cd of an underrated trumpet player. So glad to add this rare find to my jazz collection. If you don't know Fagerquist's playing, get this Cd, you will be surprised.

An important compilation of the playing of one of the best West Coast jazz trumpeters of the 1950s. Usually part of a trumpet section within a larger jazz orchestra, this CD gives the listener a chance to enjoy the improvisational style of Don Fagerquist in tracks that featured his impressive solos. Highly recommended.
