  • Pianist Mike Longo put together a fine big band of New York players for this swinging effort. The tunes are generally boppish and his arrangements are somewhat reminiscent of the music played by Dizzy Gillespie's big bands although with his own modern touches. Among the key soloists are tenor-saxophonist Frank Perowsky, altoist Lee Greene, and trumpeters Virgil Jones and Burt Collins among others. Some of the more memorable selections include "The Eternal Traingle," a Porgy and Bess medley, "A Night in Tunisia," and "It Don't Mean a Thing" (which is played surprisingly slow). Although nothing overly innovative occurs, there are plenty of subtle surprises on this fairly unpredictable but always swinging set. ~ Scott Yanow
Professional Reviews
