By Michael Brad Richman HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on April 11, 2011
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Mundell Lowe's "A Grand Night for Swinging" is one of the last out-of-print OJC discs I needed in my collection, and thanks to a low price war between two vendors in the Marketplace, I was finally able to purchase it at an affordable price a few weeks ago. For this 1957 record, the guitarist's emphasis is more on straight-ahead swing than his earlier Riverside efforts (see my reviews of Mundell Lowe Quartet and Guitar Moods By Mundell Lowe), and the album is all the better for it. Lowe's guitar sound is so smooth and relaxed, and combined with a rhythm trio led by pianist Billy Taylor (bassist Les Grinage and drummer Ed Thigpen round out the group), the results are just golden. In fact, Taylor's sound on this recording is less concert hall and more wild west saloon, which only heightens the old-timey feel and special guitar/piano chemistry. Alto saxman Gene Quill joins in on three of the seven tracks, and while I love his work with Phil Woods, his contribution here makes for a bit of a third wheel scenario, though the quintet pulls off a nice, if not magical, blowing session. In all, finally getting this CD made for a truly "Grand Night."
