Format:Audio CD
A beautiful and revelatory CD. These tunes were recorded for the Ampico reproducing piano, 1924-1927. Grofé was a brilliant and inventive pianist, but we've hardly ever had this opportunity to hear him. The Pierian Recording Society has made about a dozen compact discs of reproducing piano music, mostly classical, with just a few discs of popular music. The instrument they use has a glorious sound, it is well recorded, and the booklet is handsome and informative.
Ferde Grofé is best remembered for his own tone poem, Grand Canyon Suite. His place in the history of American music is secure because he was the original orchestrator of George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue. He was right-hand man to the pioneer band leader Paul Whiteman, writing most of the Whiteman arrangements for the first five years of its existence. Although some enthusiasts of early jazz speak poorly of the Whiteman band, it was the first, best, and most enduring of the earliest large popular music bands. All that came about as a result of the immense talents and great vision of Whiteman and Grofé.
The Pierian CD has a generous selection of excellent songs, many of which are regarded even today as "standards" - Gershwin's "Somebody Loves Me," Porter's "I'm in Love Again," Isham Jones's "It Had to Be You," - plus light-hearted favorites from the 20s such as "Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue," "Crazy Words, Crazy Tune," and "Ukulele Lady." All are given first-class treatment. The reissue company lets us down a bit by failing to give clear and complete composer information.
