Format: Audio CD
I love this music - why? There are those Jazz people, following Konitz or Gil Evans or whomever, who talk all about the "blend", the amazing quiet dynamics, the use of the french horns. Well, that's all true; they're certainly not wrong...But sometimes Music people (don't get me wrong; I am one!) sound so funny and clueless taking something and describing it on a technical level (not necessarily a very TECHNICAL technical level) when it's so obvious that there's some other level that this music operates on which, if you want to speak/write about it, you really can't/shouldn't ignore. Psychological? Sociological? Both? The deep chill...the withdrawn nature of a certain kind of White American Urban/Suburban Anomie? Which some other Poppy Jazz Music is simply a product of, but which this music seems to interrogate in a deeper, more poetic way? Well, I'm (sadly) no Walter Benjamin, so I can't tell you if that's it...but it might be. The Post - War, the station wagon, leisure time, the commuter train, the cocktails...Why didn't Cheever or Updike write this review? Where was Glen Island Casino? New Rochelle...

The work is the death mask of its conception (Benjamin)

I also think I really like the fact that this was recorded in 1947, when the Swing Era was over; but of course, all of those nice dancers didn't just fold up their tents and sneak away. Many could still remember those Glory Days of 1941. I think Thornhill's music goes down well with a soupçon of defeat. The classic Thornhill tracks are the classics, agreed. But there's something on this broadcast, corporealized in the half - hearted applause which trails away at the end of each number, which I find much more evocative and poignant.
