Typical of RCA/CAMDEN's mid-'70s Big Band reissues, FRENESI (ACL1-0590-e) has been reprocessed into fake stereo. The effect works well over speakers; headphones are another matter. Source material for these nine tracks is very clean and the music is as pretty as the album's front cover art-- prettier, even. (For a look-see, check out THIS PAGE.)

SIDE ONE NOTES
"Frenesi" is by the band Shaw assembled after returning from a Mexican sabbatical. It has added strings. "Back Bay Shuffle" is by his original "Beguine" unit and is a real swinger. The first minute of "Indian Love Call" has a prominent tom-tom beat. Tony Pastor's vocal reminds me of Louis Prima. "'S Wonderful" was arranged by Ray Conniff. Later with COLUMBIA, Ray made this the title song of one of his LPs. It's by Artie's fourth band in just seven years! Only a troubled eccentric as Shaw would have such a theme song as "Nightmare. It's a droning, moody piece with Artie's clarinet racing up and down the scales. One of his very best.

SIDE TWO NOTES
"Begin the Beguine" is a "live" version made four years after the original hit single. Constant requests for "Beguine" wore upon Shaw's patience. Urgent hi-hat and pounding toms push "Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise" along. Artie's solo statements illustrate why Benny Goodman named him the best clarinetist of all. Post-Big Band era "Carioca" is by Shaw's last group. Some fabulous drumwork on this "live" performance. Fifteen years after his first record, Artie's playing is as amazing as ever, yet he was just about ready to give it all up. Set-closing "Adios, Mariquita Linda" was waxed the same day as "Frenesi." It's a mellow tune with quiet strings at the top.

The CD came quickly and was well packed. The music is fantastic and takes me back to the time of the big bands!
